    Thanks, everyone - this has been fun, and I hope the poor plant lives to see another bloming, never mind an AM! I think I'm going to have to look into how to propagate it next time it blooms - as far as I know, this is the only one of its kind, or at least, othe only one that I have access to.

    And yes, I did name the grex. My neighborhood in Atlanta is centered around an old railway station named "Vinings" and the "Noir" part is a reference to the fact that that the judges wanted to describe the petals in part as "black" but had to settle for "maroon-black" as the official color. (Oh - "noir" is French for "black").
