Yep, I second that. It is a cousin to the Victoria. I have two small ones this year. I was able to grow one last year and had a few blooms.

It is covered in thorns, more so than the Victoria.

I don't think they do. They are mainly Victorias but If you remind me, like December, I may be able to get you some. I have a source even if mine don't get to bloom. Seeds for those can not be obtained any time of the year and still be good.

pondanimal, I was looking for these seeds and ended up at this post. Would I be able to buy some seeds from you also? Send me an email, please.
