A beauty.

Are those snow shoes for the longifolium if he misbehaves (in the background)?

Nice. Now that so many of them are around I might pull the trigger and get one. Thanks for sharing.
It's quite pleasing and seems an easy grower... This one has super delicate petals and lots of twist....

I see the hockey stick lol. But I was referring to the two objects above it. But on closer inspection, are they gnomes?

Ah yes a collection of baseball and hockey bobbleheads/gnomes and other junk... No snowshoes. No SNOW! My brother and his wife live near Barrie and love to snowshoe FWIW....

I love longifoliums and have several. The longifolium album 'Super Charlie' is still blooming and has had 17
flowers on one spike. I finally had to repot into a 12" pot with a bloom still on it and it didn't even lose
the flower. Damn fine plant!

How big is the plant itself? Pretty big, I expect!

My ‘Leslie Garay’ with an album parent is just about to open its first bloom. I almost hope I dislIke it; the plant is just so big. Three growths, and the blooming growth has a leaf span of just shy of 3 feet. It is taking up a sizable percentage of my house! 😂

This is much more diminutive! Almost like a gracile (not really!), rather than a regular longifolium. And I do not mind the smaller size at all! Photo makes it look large, it is about 22 inch leaf span. My gracile is under 20 inches.
