    First flower, 4" wide, seven in one spike. Golamco is a friend so this clone is special.

    I actually saw the coerulea plant he used to cross with the famous V.Gordon Dillon.

    Yes, Jun made the cross. This is his favorite clone. The plant was not healthy when I got it but it is recovering. You know Jun Golamco?

    I got to chat with him when I visited the Philippines. Although very short. He is nice and very knowledgeable person. It was delightful to speak with him. Though I am not sure where he is at now that Manila Seedling bank is no more.
