Ships in Fall
(W6008 x MOMENT IN THE SUN)
7.5"-8" Bloom/22-26" Tall/SEV/2-3 way branching/14 Buds/Occasional Rebloom/Fragrant/Nocturnal.
Creamy white with green throat.
The largest near white I've seen and Oscie thought it the largest he ever produced. It measures between 7 and 8 inches depending on the recurve and takes a full 2 days to open! Unfortunately the form is very variable (the petals get hung up on nearby buds) and the scape is very short for the size of the bloom making this mainly a hybridizer's plant. It's proving to be a great parent for large flowers in all colors--see SG seedlings. Fertile pollen, an occasional pod willl set.
This photo shows Sleeping Giant on the bottom and H. MICHAEL MILLER on the top for size comparison. MICHAEL MILLER is a 6" bloom.
