Wish I could get some locally here, shipping from BC is expensive, maybe I have to talk my former employer in to getting some other ones. 
Cheap Confections and Wanda are both white ones.
Love the red ones you posted Jan on Facebook.
Thanks Dave and Jan for clearing this up for me.

................Cheap Confections and Wanda are both white ones....................


Er, well? Arie if you look earlier in this thread at my 'Cheap Confections' you may see that it is pink fading to white which caused me a bit of hesitation. I checked this out on the Edrom Nursery Web Site (Edrom has a very good range of fortunei cultivars ) and found that the flower is sometimes referred to as being pink and sometimes white. Also, on the same site the flower is referred to as being white and with large pink bracts.

'Warda' although white (I'm sure you will be glad to know) it's proper name is 'Wada'
