It's a little 'different', isn't it. I still reckon that dear 'George' knocks spots off all of the others, though! lol.

Oh George! I really must plant him in the garden, now he's finished flowering in the g'house, Alice!

Louise - I'll be looking out for any different ones now. :-))

how does george and purple gem differ? I have googled them but they look so similar.

27 Feb, 2010

 

George's flowers are bigger, and the petals are more satin-ny. Similar colour - Purple Gem is a little darker, I think.

I will have to see them side by side to compare them.

Not easy - unless you've got them both - have you? My 'George' has finished now, although I still have 'Purple Gem. You could 'borrow' my photo and George's and put the two on your PC - that might help? You're welcome to 'Purple Gem'!
