    Beautiful... I had one too, was so sad when it died. Rotted after exposure to heavy rain. The flowers are amazingly beautiful:

    that's beautiful! i just got mine to flower for the first time. didn't expect it, as they are cuttings i planted last may. pretty strong stench for just 2 flowers. one flower had the petals completely recurved so it looked like a big red button, and the other stayed more star shaped. they seem to get a trailing habit, so i might put them a hanging planter now. i imagine mine would do better with more shade too.
