A first flowering. I hope it will improve on subsequent bloomings. The foliage is an interesting silver/grey, quite distinct from all my other barbata. Bloom is larger than I was expecting, but very basset hound!:)

A beautiful flowering and a very nice plant. I see that it is some moss growing above the substrate may I now suppose that you use a very low level for feeding?

Lots of red hues in this flower. Very nice:clap:

Can you add some pics from other angles Gary? For this and ciliolare most of the pics are face on, and the petals do some interesting curvy things that can hide some of the petal length.

Wow! :eek:

It's really keeping with the holiday season theme. Absolutely gorgeous and I love that foliage. :D

EDIT:
Forgot to mention, you've been feeding it wine, haven't you? That's why it's so red. :poke:
