In this view, the long, white, persistent spathes of
'Truly Faded' have opened up as if unhinged,
dominant in the inflorescences like phantom canoes
dripping with soft pink bells fading to old rose.

On the bottom right is a new selection named
'Boston Baked Beans', a good dwarf sort with
interesting brownish-red bells.  Click here to
see that selection in bud.
