    It's a Dend. spectabile. A species with a really weird (but beautiful) flower!

    Beautiful pictures Pavel... the colours just spring out! And I've never been a huge fan of the Dend spectabile until that photo!

    Gotta love such bizarre flowers! I had considered getting a Den spectabile at one time ... fortunately I found out how tall the canes could get before purchasing one.. [Saw a nice specimen at a different show -- canes were 3-4 ft tall.] Unlikely to fit a mature plant on one of my plantstand shelves LOL.
