    Not as good as last year ( if I can find the thread I'll come back here , edit and add a link) when it had 3 spikes and nearer 30 flowers. Flowers also smaller than last year. I blame our very poor summer . But still quite a stunner.
    Last year it won something at a big show at Wisley - the RHS garden in Surrey. It may last another 2 weeks and get into a Society display at a big show at Malvern , but will be past its best then.

    The color is amazing. I don't think I've seen one quite that dark before, nice!
