That's really great color on Honora with the light coming through from behind!

That was my 2nd attempt on that flower. The first came out looking nothing like it color wise, so once the sun came around the trees I tried again and it came out much better.

Niobe doesnt' see the sun at this point, so I never could get a very good picture of it.

fabulous shot of the honora!!! and i love the flower - it's beautiful!

the others as well!! the julia looks similar to jackmanii and i've always loved niobi - never see it for sale around here though.

i've got to post pics of mine...the baby (just two years old) flowered for me - took me completely by surprise! i also have to go looking for the name of it, too...

The colors are off in the photos, so no hot pink. Sorry. :wink: They're all a little deeper colored and Niobe is closer to red. Honora has more of a purple cast and a velvety texture which didn't show up in the picture.

Thanks Joclyn. It is a beautiful flower. You should post pics of yours.
