Pinkish Purple flower buds
« on: April 07, 2020, 08:32:44 PM »
After several years, a cross between Miho and Poncirus is about to bloom.  The pinkish purple color is slightly more intense than shown, and the smallest buds have more color.  I have only seen this color on lemons and limes before.

lets hope it taste good and goes down to -10F.  That way I can grow it in ground

Interesting, I wonder if Miho was a mother plant?
It seems that this hybrid is unifolate that is very unusual for F1 hybrids with poncirus.
Best regards,

Good observation.  Unifoliate leaves nearest the flowers, older leaves are trifoliate.  Miho was the mother.

Better picture of color, taken in morning light.
