    This is a cross of cucullata x digbyana and is an old time favorite. First blooming for this plant and I am surprised how this one changed color. Is this normal?

    very nice, big flower! Brsvl. cucullata change colour from nearly red/brown to clear cream/white so I belive it is very normal.

    I concur with Piotr. I've seen them white and I've seen the best red in the world on this cross. Either way it's a great bloom and worthy of bench space!
    THanks Jean. Nice photo, too.
