    Jealous...very jealous! One of these days I will give up and pay the ridiculous amount for one. They are such a pretty flower! Lucky you!

    Lovely! Nice change from the typical red Rens one normally sees.

    Just bought one today, it was $55 not in bloom. Can't wait to see it bloom. Yours is very beautiful.

    How odd that you complain of expense ; when the Far East people come to UK , we can get them for the same price as any other Renanthera - typically say US$20 for a NFS or FS plant.
    Incidentally, for all Ren' lovers reading this, I did a forensics job on my supposed R.annamense, when the flowers were fully devopled and my R.citrina was also fully out, and concluded they are one and the same thing - at least my two plants . Whether any R.annamense are different remains to be seen, if and when I get another one.

    Geoff, I know the price in e.g. in China, 2 USD/plant. You know, when a nursery in Europe buy the plants from Asia, they don't see the flowers. Ren. citrina, annamense or vietnamense, all of them look a very similar. Even, when you see the flower, you can't say, by 100% what it's, can't you? Important is, we like them.
