    Cool Bepi. Gordon Vickers

    This plant is growing nicely and blooming once again. I noticed the interesting lip right away. All three open so far have an interesting looking splotch that looks like the outline of a man.

    The "man" in the first pictured flower is the best -- reminds me of a conductor in his formal attire. Too bad the spotting is restricted to the back side on the petals.

    Love it! Reminds me of an art deco sketch of a man.

    I hadn't noticed that before, but it sure does look like a sketch of a man. I'm really liking the B. nodosa hybrids more all the time. (I found a blooming Bl 'Yellow Bird' at big box store today).
    Cheers,
    Tony
