    This is my first Wössner Favourite in its second bloom.
    It is a very large flower with a mild scent.
    I tried to cross this with my Magic Lantern, but neither plant took. Oh, well..

    Cool. I tend not to be terribly fond of parvi x brachy crosses, but the hybrids with hangianum are really wonderful and I do think this is my favorite of the bunch. I've had it on my wish list for awhile, but as of yet I haven't picked one up. Nice to hear there's some potential for fragrance.

    i notice the same thing of cross between brachy & parvi, many resulting in misshaped flowers, particularly those with bellatulum as one parent or delenatii as one parent .
    This combination is nice and the flower on the other hand is very good, maybe it is the reason why it was call wossner 's favorite.
