Hi everyone - I just thought I'd share the pic's of this nice little Bill seeding I've just flowered for the first time. I bought it and five others about four years ago and it's just now finally flowered.

Although the flowers are nice they are short lived like most Bill's but the great foliage colour is there for me to enjoy all of the time.

There is another nice one from the same batch of seedlings which is much lighter in colour and when it flowers I'll post a pic of that as well.

All the best, Nev.

Hi Rick - It's Bill 'Fred Red' x 'Hallelujah' and it is either one of your crosses or one of Tamara's I don't know which, as the Bower Birds stole the original plastic name tag on which I had written who I got it from.

All the best, Nev.

Hi everyone - Here's a couple of pic's of the second seedling from that Bill 'Fred Red' x 'Hallelujah' cross that the previous seedling came from.

All the best, Nev.
