How large are those blooms? They look wonderful to wake up to in the morning!

Hi Rosemarie,

These awesome flowers are 5 inches in diameter, and last until the hot sun hits them, then they melt away. Do you grow JMGs too?

Wow, Joseph! Five inches?!? No, I don't grow JMGs but have admired yours (I think they were yours, anyway) from the past posts & marked their names to get some in the future! I will have to go check my Dream List again! :D I still remember those gorgeous Ceratotheca you posted not too long ago!

Rosemarie,

Thanks so much for your kind words. I am growing the lavender Ceratotheca triloba and am trying out the white form of that species, so if I am lucky I will have flower pictures and seeds to offer later in the summer, not to mention some JMGs too.
