From Seed to Flower

I just received my first flower from seed that I started late in the fall of 2009.  Here are the photos showing the seed, newly germinated seedlings, and finally the flower taken last night.  It has been a rewarding experience, but it took a lot of nuturing and attention.  The plant was H. cumingiana and was pollinated in the greenhouse by an unknown insect in the summer of 2009.
