Some of Kobie's Hippi's
« on: November 12, 2009, 15:18:42 PM »
Sonata Fire Cracker


This one was purchased as Blushing Bride but the picture showed a pink flower?


Six huge flowers on one scape, second bloom this year ID?

Ernest.

Lovely Amaryllis. Yes blushing Bride is pink and much smaller flowers . I have also puchased Hadeco bulbs that were incorrectly labelled. Last one is a real beaut. :clap:

Thanks everyone,
 
Rena, thanks I will make a note of the names

Dave, compared to the photo of "Blushing bride", I think we got better value for our money.

Kobie

Update on no.3 Rozetta:


One flower measures 245 mm accross.



Seven scapes on one penducle. Is it perhaps two  fused into one? look at no.3 at the top.
The top of the flowers are 700 mm from glound level. Compare size to Sonata Fire Cracker behind it.

Ernst &  Kobie
