Not quite as many flowers as Williams coerulea clone but this mericlone has done well with 18 blooms.
It’s unusual because one of the spikes is from a growth over a year old. It didn’t flower last year and instead produced two new growths. Now all three are in bloom. It makes a nice show!
There is just a slight scent so far.
Maxima seems to be an easy grower and quite vigorous.

Wonderful flowers and very well grown plant!!! I look for a true s/a maxima for a while, not often seen, and all I bought as s/a, turned to regular form.Just after opening they seemed to be s/a, but after a few days they started to darken.
