The Blacklock cultivar "William T. Macoun". There may not be any other photos of it in existence Taken by Alexis (Lex) Landon (wife of Reiner Jakubowski) in 1999 and believed by the current owner, Dr. Jim Cruise  to be the first bloom in almost 25 years. The plant was acquired from Miss Blacklock at Rowancroft Gardens by the first owner Bob Landon who counted Miss Blacklock as a special gardening friend.
