Mirabilis or not?
« on: June 06, 2012, 02:12:43 »
A clivia expert in China shows a photo of Mirabilis in bloom. I think that the flowers look more like Gardenii. Can anyone tell me if it is a pure Mirabilis?
Thanks!

Definitely not a mirabilis, it is either a gardenii or a robusta. From the leave tip that i can see, it looks like a gardenii.

Seedlings from this plant are offered as Mirabilis seedlings by that expert.

The penduncle, pedicel, ovary and flowerhead are not like any mirabilis I have seen.
