    Nice present!! It could be anything...



    I tried growing these for a few years but couldn't get them to re-bloom at all. Our 80 degree summer night lows are really frustrating where these plants are concerned. I hope you have more luck than I did!

    I would call it BEAUTIFUL - because that is what it is. WOW!! I hope you can get the name because I want this one. I love the spots.

    Cheers,

    It is a real Beauty! I read somewhere that in hot zones, if you want cymbs to re-bloom, Starting in August, you can add ice cubes at night to the pot. I do not know if this works, since I haven't tried it yet

    It's beautiful, "What's in a name." In this case call it anything you like as tracking it down would be just shear luck.
