    It may not have given up a large quantity of flowers...but with quality like this I'm thinking i'd give in be happy anyways. lol I love that pristine white...very pretty. Maybe next year it will kick into gear and give up a huge group of flowers for you. I find even my nicest plants only bloom heavy once every so many years. My plant I refer to as Mr Vickers gave me a show with 4 or 5 spikes last year, but since then it's been one here or there, and none quite that nice. Someone on here said this awhile back and I totally agree, plants only go all out once in a great while. Be patient.

    Sorry you didn't get so many blooms, but the flowers themselves are really lovely.
