Perfect flowers. I have a sedenii var Candidulum that is longifolium x schlimii that has been
problematic. It has two growths and hasn't bloomed...yet. Might this one be the
same cross?

How is it written on the tag? Yes the same cross but I vaguely recall reading somewhere that Sedenii may grow as a natural hybrid (not sure if proven) and suspect that Candidulum may be a variety of the natural hybrid-this would be shown on the tag as something like xsedeneii var Candidulum.
On the other hand, Candidum is a clonal name of a man made hybrid and shown as Sedenii ‘Candidum’.
Is anyone more knowledgeable able to comment??

The tag is written as follows: Phrag. Sedenii var Candidulum. Nothing else except the
cross longifolium x Schlimii written just like that. No other information. Thank you
for the response tcosta. If the ^%$*&! thing will bloom, perhaps I'll have my answer.
I dearly hope the flower looks like your blooms.
