    That's one of my favorite species in the genus! Lovely shot, Aaron!

    I haven't visited my folks in a while - I need to get down to FL too. Set a date Diane, and we'll all party at Cin's! Let's see what Mr. Hicks thinks of that!

    Oh my Aaron, the colors on that Schomburgkia Splendida are splendiforous.
    I love the contrast of the deep rusty red and purple and the bright touch of yellow just sets it all off. Great job!

    Thanks all! Oh, it's alright Cin! I have been guilty of the same The spike is about 5-6 feet. This one is a little peculiar, I have 4 other splendidas but nonewith this color variation. Most are ussually a puuple to a pink. This one almost looks like an undulata because of the brown color in the flower. I swear you could fool someone with it, but it's lip is deffinently a splendida.I forgot to mention the splendid scent; really nice!
