    Last year it had three spikes, each had 7 flowers. This year I can see four but the last one is delayed, it may not catch up to make a foursome.
    Still making seven flowers per spike. So I called SSS. 20190504_093235.jpg 20190504_093321.jpg 20190504_093420.jpg

    SVO Troy,,, way back 6-7 years ago. Probably the fourth flowering. I need to repot this now as it has so many new growth. Dont think they have this cross anymore. ROTH was Samba and the phillie was DD's, i think. I was just lucky probably one of the best that came out from that cross.

    That is incredible. Seven flowers on a spike is amazing. The growths look pretty compact too. Quality flowers as well.

    could you post a smaller picture of the whole plant in flower please. Scrolling loses the effect. Thanks.

    Will post an update when all 21 flowers are open.
    You are probably opening the pic on a computer screen or laptop. It is normal size on a phone. Try adjusting your resolution.

    I agree with Stephen. I have a 27-inch monitor and these photos are way to big for that. The photos are fine on my phone, but photos need to be posted so that everyone can view them, not just people using phones.

    I have a 21" screen. 1920 X 1080. They are enormous. There must be an option to size to a 17" screen (which I think works best, IMHO)

    more complicated but better 'control'

    That is an awesome St Swithin. The floriferousness alone makes it special, but the flowers are great too. Mike

    One spike broke my record with 8 flowers. 22 flowers in all and counting.
