After years of waiting our yellow robusta finally decided to reward us with a flower - definitely worth the wait.

Hi guys

Thanks for the compliments - glad you enjoyed.

Lionel I dont think I am going to polinate it, maybe self a few just out of curiousity to see what colour bases one can expect.

All the best
Pieter

Hi Liesl

This one remains pure yellow - the same as Green Ivory (pure yellow Gardenii - pic below). Last year I selfed a few flowers on that one and all those germinated with unpigmented stems so I quite interested to see what this one will do (maybe I should polinate a few flowers with Green Ivory to see what those do as well)

Tut, tut, what a lovely comparison to an innocent young lady - I wonder if she will blush as she gets older .

Well worth the wait Pieter.

Kind regards

Neville.
