    Fresh and pretty... lemon/lime. How large are the flowers? Any fragrance? Looks like a very healthy and happy plant!

    I can't detect any fragrance. The flower is about 1.25"--1.5"

    Very pretty, I like the way the blooms are arranged on the spike.
    And the color combo of course!

    The color combo is outstanding. It looks like it would have a fragrance, but I guess it doesn't need one to attract its pollinator. So pretty, Tom. Thanks for sharing it.

    Cheers,
