    Hi,

    this species is an early bloomer, around 6am, and lasts for 2 hours only. Highly fragrant and flowers frequently.

    Cheers!

    What a pity that such a beautiful flowers last only two hours - but on the other hand, lucky that it is frequent bloomer. Amazing lip!

    Thanks Tom,
    pretty much all year around, maybe resting periods of 3 months.

    Wonderful shots, Ron! Incredibly disappointing that the flowers are so short lived.
