Just bloomed. The man who sold it to me said it's a very large, dark variety. I don't have any experience with this flower, but the flower is quite dark, I like it. (I took the photo in sunlight, didn't doctor anything.) It's my first blooming of this, and I suspect I may have a division of the plant, since I'm not seeing any previous blooms, but the guy knew how it flowers. No clonal name.

Oh, and to get it to flower, I fried it in the sun this summer. This guy likes sunlight.

Hrm....It seems to be having trouble loading the photo. At first there was just a red "x" so I changed it to an image tag but it is still having issues?

There it is! And it is really dark! I like it!

Hmmm... I think you just converted the thumbnail to an image, it's only like an inch tall now!

Try this one.

Gotta say it again: Who needs hybrids????? Huh?
You took the words right of my mouth!!!:wink:
With regard to the beauty of this flower there is no heightening possible.
Perhaps you can improve any other characteristics of this species by hybridizing - but its beauty is unique.
Best regards from Germany, GuRu
