I have soooo many pictures now. It’s crazy. Scores of them, each of a bloom that lasted just 8 hours or so. There are literally too many to post.
What should I do? I could do an all-pink post, or all-yellow, or all-red; or the funky striped hybrid I seem to have created accidentally. I can’t pick the ‘best of’ as every one is perfect and amazing.
Okay. I have two “cheating” pictures, where there is more than one flower in the shot. I’ll start with those.
A rare, dry morning!
Ooo, one with my hand in frame, to give you an idea of size. I don’t have small hands, either!
My favourite picture so far of several together. Had it as my FB cover photo until about an hour ago.
Oh, and did I say I had two ‘cheating’ pictures? Turns out it was 13. Whoopsie!
Hope you liked them – and I am willing to post seed to you, if you want to give them a try. First year they won’t bloom, but the next? You get this madness!
I love thes!e! I hope to be moved elsewhere by this time next year, so I will ask for seeds later 😀
Okay! I want to spread the love 🙂
I have never heard of these and they are beautiful. I would azk for seeds, but don’t know how well they would do in dry, dry west Texas. I love your blog.
They are actually native to South America, so anything is possible!
Jeepers, those are huge! How many of yours are in bloom at one time?
Well, I have at least six pots going – one or two in each, nearly every day. Wish I was at home during blooming hours, though. Sometimes in the morning they aren’t all the way open yet, so I miss out.
Those are just stunning! You have a green, green thumb!
It’s funny – here they say green fingers, not green thumb! I think I might be green up to the shoulders 🙂
Do you think seeds could come here –clear across the pond?
Sure! I’d have to call it sea shells or something on the envelope – it seems there are restrictions on moving anything that might have come in contact with ‘foreign soil’. I can understand that – but I’d be harvesting from the pod, and no insects would be traveling, either.
Oh, good! I would like to have some, if you don’t mind.
Will do! Nothing ready right now, of course 🙂 I’d guess maybe November before they are ready.
Okay, works for me. I can’t plant now anyway. Thank you.
Oh, these are just gorgeous and you took the most beautiful photos as well. I sure would love some seeds and try my hand at these beauties. You are so lucky to see these beauties when they bloom. Thanks for sharing. 😀 ♥
Wow, I especially like the pales ones….
The yellow ones? Funny – yesterday was an all-yellow day!
Yellow, and I think there is a peach looking one too.
The stripey one, maybe? That’s the hybrid I accidentally created last year.
Fourth pic down…sort of coral colored.
I love those flowers, they are just beautiful 🙂
