    I bought this in Feb' last year. Seller bought an expensive flask supposedly of the var' annamense. Clearly not but that didn't matter to me. The plant put a lot into growth & this one & only flower could have been better but next time multiple flowers hopefully.

    But the "one & only flower" has a real nice colour, I find...I would, in your shoes, wait for a more floriferous flowering with eager anticipation!

    Kind regards, Jens

    annamense I think is a pale background flower with a heavy rose/red flush dorsal. There are a few variations on Dr. google. You get an idea though. This was checked as best as possible by a Botanist & he confirmed to the 99% degree this is a villosum, what its make up is is unknown. Other plants flowered are similar to this, extremely similar actually.
