    The shape of the flower definitely does not look like any porpax I have ever seen -- though the flowers look very familiar. I'll be interested to hear what it is.

    Ah yes, that name is familiar! Neat little bloom all the same-- even if it isn't a porpax.

    Oh and if you're pining for a porpax, Jeff, drop me a pm and we'll see what we can work out.
