    That is so beautiful! I have Mem. Robert Strait 'Hawaii', which should look similar. It is a couple of years from blooming, though, so I'll just swoon over yours. That shade of blue violet is so pleasing to the eye, and the blue tinges on the petals are wonderful!

    Thanks everyone for looking.

    I bought this one in bud last March. It was climbing to the pot edge and the roots inside the pot were all rotted. I re-potted right away, but it took it a long time to get back into shape (maybe because I didn't cut off the spike). I almost gave it away, but I am glad I didn't. The bloom is huge compared to the plant size and lasts quite long.
