    very nice but that isn't Max triloris...I believe it is Max cucullata
    If you do a google image search you can see what triloris looks like.

    Hmmm, amazing how many different looking flowers one finds doing a particular search. Based on the majority of photos, Ron, I have to agree with ya. *sigh* I always dislike those occasions when I discover a flower of mine has been misIDed. Though I can't blame Mike -- it's what the tag said when he got it. Guess I'll have to change the tag. .... the real triloris is really nifty IMO.

    Oh, & Julie, no scent that I could detect.

    I have quite a few Maxxies in my collection...I have a pic of cucullata...looks slightly different than yours but I feel fairly confident that yours is a cucullata
