After years of patience, we finally got a bloom this year.

Congrats on your bloom David! Is that parviflorum? It is beauteous. I had a first bud last year on my 'Gisela' but the puppy got it before it had a chance to open. I have three buds this year and can't wait to see the flowers.

Paul,

Yes, this is cyp. parviflorum. I'd love to have some of those hybrids like yours, but thought I'd try out a $20 plant before I dropped $60!
