    I was actually kind of confused about that. Since your winter is our summer, do you think the plant will follow an internal clock and bloom on your seasonal schedule (hence winter blooming for you, summer for me), or adapt its bloom schedule to the environmental variables in the particular region that it calls home?

    It is a real cutie and should flower in your mid winter/early spring.Here in the southern hemisphere the flowering time is June - August .
    I had one of these a couple of years back and it 3 consectutive growths in the season

    Hi Colin,

    Plants don't follow our calendars, but do follow day length and temp changes to signal seasonal changes. An Aussie plant could have jet lag, if it was recently shipped from down under. Otherwise, if it's been growing in the States for some time (possibly since a seedling), flip it's blooming season down there to figure out it's season here.

    Ok, that being the theory, I just checked the database, and almost all of the AOS awards for blooming nugentii in the US were awarded in Mar-Apr. Gosh, what a lovely, delicate flower! I can't wait to see yours bloom!

    From what little I read, looks like this is one of those that has been reclassified/renamed Dockrillia

    Like the nice tight growth habit.

    The accepted name for this species is actually Den. linguiforme, although it's also known as Den. linguiforme var. nugentii, Dockrillia linguiforme and Dockrillia nugentii.
