Wonderful pics.  Your pics definitely confirm that my Habranthus estense
thankfully appears to be the right thing, although my gracilifolius
definitely is not.  Is there a Habranthus that basically has the form of
estense, but is a very pale soft pink that fades a little as it ages
(almost to white)?  That is what my H. gracilifolius looks like and was
what started this discussion in the first place.

The Habranthus pedunculosus looks wonderful.  That is a lovely blend of
colours throughout the throat etc.  Will have to look out for that one in
the future.  Lovely to have seen it.

Thanks for posting the pics.
