I guess this clone is very famous now...Just want to share my record of the three phases color change of it. All happened so fast it was magical.

The day the plant bloomed:

Yes, indeed the red color is nicer than the yellow in my opinion.

Thanks for the comment, silken
It is a gorgeous hybrid. This time is the third time it bloomed, and the flowers are noticeably larger than before, around 3 inch across, making it more lovely

If you find them in Canada, I would appreciate knowing where too, as its on my wish list. I have looked at Clouds and Paramount and they don't have it.
