    I have a small doubt as to whether this is true to name - certainly my plant is generally similar to the one shown in IOSPE but rather less colorful ; but Jay says something about the floral bracts, and their shape, and I can't see this at all in my plant. But it's the best name I've got....
    Flowers about 16mm max spread. A pretty little thing even if not as colorful as I'd hoped. And three spikes too ! on what is obviously still quite a young small plant.

    Geoff - I keep going back and forth between your photos and Jay's on IOSPE and, although the basic shape of the lip seems the same, your flowers look much flatter than his photo - and, of course, IOSPE's photo shows a bright yellow plant. Could it be due to immaturity? It's very pretty just the same, and your photos bear your usual stamp of excellence.

    Very pretty, whatever you call it! I love the tiny flowers that look like they are made of fairy dust.
