    Here's my 2016 blooming of my Toni Semple. It isn't quite as nice as last year as my whole collection has been a little neglected the past two months due to work. But still has 5 good size flowers on a giant spike. I let the spike go completely natural this year and it kept the flowers from having any petals point in odd directions. Not the best pictures, but I doubt I'll get around to snapping better ones.

    Excellent. Looks like a healthy, large plant to boot.

    I like the way you have let the spike do its own thing --- must try this on one of mine in the spring,
    lovely,
