    Ron may be you are right but jays encyclopedia describe it as cirrhopetalum robustum or bulb. graveolens. Just have a look the above link. I also confused with my limited knowledge. Thanks.

    really a very well flowered clone of this species... it says that usually has 8-9 flowers and you have 11!!! Well done, Zain.

    This is also such a spectacular plant in reality... quite a big plant but what a display!

    Zain, there is quite a bit of confusing information on the internet. I love Jay's site and use it quite frequently myself. I don't always agree with info I find there. Not sure if it just isn't keeping up with the current literature or not. I check my Bulbo info against the "world checklist" of the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew. This gives me the accepted name as well as area of the world that the species grow.

    I didn't realize that this one wasn't in you link list. It comes in very handy for species.
