Hi there! I noticed that this plant has a white flower, but others have a rosey to pink flower. Which is the most common? The plant that I have I'm just trying to research it. My plant is over a century old and has bloomed once in my life time. It bloomed in about the 60's. So I cannot tell you much. I just acquired it from my mother who is 86. This plant was her mothers. So I'm trying to understand how I take cuttings, when should I take cuttings, or even if this is the way to start another plant. When do I know it is going to bloom? I really know nothing. So can you tell me anything? Thanks
