    The flowers of this species are about 1/4" or a bit more. The flowers are surprisingly long lasting. After looking at some of the images that Tom posted over time, I may be giving mine to much light as my leaves are rather light. I did just get another layer of shade cloth on the south roof and may have been a few weeks too late.

    I've never tried this genus but it intrigues me. Thanks for the post

    Nice blooming, Marni.
    I do grow mine just a little bit brighter than the average Masd. light. BTW, it doesn't like to be divided.

    Thanks, Tom, I'll move mine so they get more shade.
