No fragrance. A friend gave me this 3 growth division last May and the old growths measure 20 inches.

Tenebrosas are tall (2.5 feet) skinny plants that are quite free blooming and fast growers.

My division of 'Rainforest' blooms reliably every June/July with massive 20 cm flowers. I bred it to Glen's rounder tenebrosa (and vice versa) and have quite a few flasks from this. Will be quite a spectacular sib cross.

Mine has matured a big new growth and has a sheath - so I have to wait 4-6 months for summer?
Well being down under makes the flowering period from November to January...

I like these chocolate and burgundy flowers a lot and would grow a plant.....if I had the space. That's a lovely one Rick.
