Laboratory comment:
We grateful received seeds as donation from Luka. Luka Golemac added: Big fragrant white blooms which are greenish/yellow inside and purple, green and maroon outside. I have 4 bulbs that my friend gave me and he got them as seeds from Judith Freeman many years ago. Real and nice Black Dragon strain is hard to find today.
Thanks Luka!
