    I purchased this as a seedling some years ago. This is its first blooming. I was intrigued by the crossing of the two color forms - aurea and alba. I took it my Society meeting yesterday where there was another tenebrosa and a tenebrosa primary hybrid. My flowers were significantly larger, but not the best form in my opinion. The owner of the typical tenebrosa really liked mine. So I gave it to her.
    Thankfully i snapped these pictures before I left the house.
