Well, here is the bloom of Mtn. Sunrise X ((Twice
Told X Connie Sue) x Foreign Legion). Not as colorful as I had hoped but
OK, I guess, might have been due to the 90 degree temps we had when it
opened. Huge bloom, the falls are 4" wide each. Very thick substance
to the petals and nice, wide form with overlapping shoulders. Triple
socketed in the terminal and base branch giving 10 buds, so that is nice.
Didn't turn out how my mind had pictured it, but of course that always happens,
sometimes to the better. It's sibling is showing significant color and it
looks to be much more interesting with an additional branch. Can't tell
the bud count yet on it but will post a picture when it blooms. Didn't
