I think most of you have seen this already but just in case, I think it is one of the plants in my collection that has bloomed out the best. Thanks Ross! This one's a keeper!!

I absolutely adore the petal stance - NS was about 23cm.
Cross is lowii 'Dragonfly' AM/AOS x philippinense var. roebelinii 'Birch Point' AM/AOS

As I recall the petals were more pendulant (is that a word?) Am I making this up??

I am pretty sure that's a word. Right? Now, I'm confused. Yeah, well, if it isn't, it is now.

I believe the word generally used for petals which hang down is "pendant"... however, I don't see any reason why we can't have two words to describe the same thing!

Beautiful Berenice Heather! I am green with envy!

the word us doctor-types use is "pendulous," but the context we use it in is entirely different...sagging breasts. :wink:
