    How strange. It looks like a scary mask. I really like it!!! Is it a small plant? Small bloom?

    Cheers,

    It is a rambler but the space between the p-bulbs is not great. The flower is maybe an inch high or slightly less. It will bloom intermittently from mid spring through fall. It rarely has more than one or two flowers open at the same time. The p-bulbs are about 1.5" with a single apical leaf that is about 1.5". Here is a pic of the plant

    Whoa, very different that what I imagined. The bloom is fascinating.
