    I only have two varieties. The regular papilio and a new acquisition Pyp. Kalihi 'Green Valley'. An alba form of a cross between papilio and krameriana. Like the papilio very much and they do well. Don't know about the other yet because I got it off the bargain table after someone picked the flower. I do like the red bands on papilio leaves.

    I have the same Kalihi 'Green Valley'. In fact, I have a tattoo of this Psycopsis. It is blooming again on the 2 year old spike.

    What is most amazing is that your tattoo is blooming again.
