Northpine: Your Jackmani looks like a Jackmanii Superba. Much larger and brighter flowers than the regular Jackmani. I had both in my last house, and they were really quite different.

BBQ, you could be right. I ordered it from Lindenberg's and sometimes I find their descriptions a bit sketchy. It was just a wisp of a thing when I received it in 2006. I wonder if it will ever get to look anything like Blossom's gorgeous specimens! WOW.

Thank you for mentioning Jays Liz. I had almost forgotten about the grey Jays visiting here last spring.

I remember Blossom posting her stunning Jackmanii last year. It took my breath away then, and it's no less gorgeous the second time around!
