I had the pleasure of receiving the latest generation of Autumn Colors by Bill Welch this season. I spoke to him over the phone and he informed me that he added N. Elegans into the group to achieve a darker cup and earlier bloom. This new generation is even more amazing to me than the previous. The cups are very unique and the flowers vary widely. Only a few have opened so far but I will continue to update this page with photos as new individuals bloom.

This cup is curved inward nicely and may be a miniature:

and here we have a larger floret: 

This photo of an elegans Hybrid was taken by Bill on his farm:

Almost all of these are intensely fragrant with a sweet honey scent.
