Z. morrisclintii is a pastel pink, very early blooming zeph.
It has shown flowers as early as Feb under glass. A couple of important details: The flowers are pleasantly fragrant, and seedlings seem to vary as to intensity of fragrance, this species is very self fertile and will cross if you have other plants in bloom at the same time.
