i love it and I've seen gorgeous results crossing these with large-flowered labiate species. would love to cross a rex onto Aristocrat, glauca, or digbyana.

Tom this is lovely....big and fringed lips. Are the sepals and petals kind of waxy ? I presume they need a lot of sun to bring them to flower?

Yes they can take lots of light. I believe the color can vary with the amount of light. Leaves very thick. Tepals are heavy substance and waxey.
