H. Fragrance Dancing Princess

Ewing, VA

It's name says it all....

FDP slept for almost 6 months since I planted it. It is a tiny 14 cm bulb. Finally it decided to wake up last month and it's first flower was a double.

Oh how pretty I thought. But then I remembered that it was supposed to be a single flowered one. Further inspection as it's flowers fully opened revealed that it was 2 FUSED flowers!!!

Bummer!!! But that's ok...It did have the sweetest fragrance that you can smell even if you are a few feet away.

Will it have that white center stripe on it's leaves like Mrs. Garfield and H. reticulatum var striatifolium????
