Abby, this is so beautiful. It retained the colour of papilio but the form has improved. I would also love to know what Melusine looks like.

Unfortunately I do not have H.Melusine - I bought the seed from
Arghya Gardens in 2008



Most of you will be familiar with H Papilio



As you can see the Papilio is quite dominant in this cross

Here is another seedling of the same cross and this one looks more like mum but still has the distinctive H.Papilio edge.
