    Are these blooms short-lived, Ron? It looks very large too, but that might be the photo angle.

    Cheers,

    It is a fairly large flower...4" petal spread. This is the first flower for me but if I recall correctly, each flower last a couple of weeks and then is followed by another flower on the spike, that is if the plant is mature. It has a light sweet fragrance as well
