    Default L. purpurata v. flammea 'Nancy' FCC/AOS

    I was lucky enough to pick up a division of this at a local auction. When awarded the FCC, it also got an CCE. It had almost 40 flowers. NSW=19.7, NSL=17.5. The flowers are huge.

    After this bloom I divided the plant. Now I have three plants that don't look that great.
