This one is a triple pink, and you will note it has dropped one of its skirts. Fragrance is pleasing, reminiscent of jasmine.

Thank you both! The third skirt dropped today, but now the top one is looking wilted. Fragrance is incredible. I am hoping the color will be richer under more normal conditions, not these 90-100 degree temperatures!

John, the jasmine tone to the fragrance sounds pretty special. Sorry to hear that the heat is shortening the bloom's life. The plena floras seem to take a long time opening - it's a shame if they don't last awhile once they finally open.

I have a double orange seedling that bloomed last year for the first time. It is now opening its first bloom for this year...the inner skirt was starting to drop today & the color is beginning to fuse in. It should have it all together either tomorrow or the next day. Fragrance? I don't know - it will take a step ladder to get up high enough to sniff the bloom!
