    An interesting species but it is way over rated and priced in U.S. Flower is tiny but long lasting.

    Yes, if you call that blue. The color is very close to real.

    Wow! I am impressed and I find this 'blue color', if true to life to be exceptional and eye catching. This is a must have on my part.

    I guarantee the color is real if you can grow it slightly cooler.

    Amey, the flower is tiny, maybe 0.4" wide, 0.5" long with the spur.

    Tom; Answer this only if you have the time, but what is 'slightly cooler'? Right now my greenhouse is 65 degrees F. to 75 degrees F. In summer a high of 90 degrees. Would this suit?
