Full Description: Echinopsis hybrid 'Brigitte's Beauty' Has a 4 inches (10.5 cm) diameter fragrant bloom . Petals have a prominent fold along apical portion of midrib, purplish-pink with broad, white margin, narrow yellowish basal stripe, and dark purplish-pink midrib. Throat-circle white. Filaments dark purplish-pink. Stigma light green. Flowers are fragrant. Stem growth is semi-columnar, to 4 to 5 inches (11-13 cm) in diameter; central spines to 1 inch (25 mm) long. This hybrid is said to be shy to flower by some, but is very beautifully colored. Unfortunately, it has a tendency toward unsightly stem corking. Hybridized by Bob Schick.

More info. : This variety does have a tendency to stem cork on larger mature plants usually at 5" inch + in diameter and near base, often only on one side of the plant, occasionally some plants occur no stem corking though. Stem corking does not affect the blooming or speed of growth but is somewhat unsightly. (Below shows examples of stem corking on one side a large plant, its approx. 6" in diameter at base). This variety does make up for the stem corking issue by producing magnificent blooms and is a decent pup or offset producer, producing offsets natural each season on its own on plants averaging 3" in diameter and larger.

Ech. cv 'Brigittes Beauty' was named by Bob Schick to honor Brigitte Williams a long time C.S.S.A. member.

Said to be a shy bloomer by some but we have not experienced that at all in growing this variety, in fact it tends to bloom profusely from larger 4" diameter and up sized plants and several times during the blooming season.

( Below are more pictures of 'Brigettes Beauty' from various seasons in bloom; front, side view & typical stem growth examples.)
