    I always enjoy this one in bloom. It looks like the back or a bumble bee or a beetle.

    It is a cute lil' guy! How many blooms do you normally get on it at once?

    It has no problem throwing out three to five spikes... one or two at a time.

    It has no problem throwing out five spikes... two or three at a time, it's a large flower for the size of the plant.
