    WOW! Love the last photo of the blooms. I have never seen this one before. Thanks for introducing it to me. Could you share the requirements it needs to grow and bloom? Love the color and the form of the blooms.

    I grow that in south window (by the side) with shades, so it does get some sun and there is a lot of air movement. I water and fertilize frequently when there is new growth in spring but reduce quite a lot after fall.
