    Alkways a favourite of mine - how many flowers will you have when all open ? I believe 9 would be almost a record , and five or six is pretty good culture.
    When dianthus was first dicovered it was thought to be just parushii with a horizontal flower spike instead of a vertical one , but now are both considered to be independent species, and both worth having in a collection.

    Good dramatic colouring here - I love it.

    Geoff, today of of buds are open and each spike is carrying 5 flowers. Really a great view. You are right, Paph. parishii is very close to Pah. dianthu. I have both of them.

    I agree with Geoff about the second picture. I recently saw an alba form of parishii at a friend's place but I think your normal form is much prettier with those dark coloured lateral petals.

    Mieczyslaw, those are incredible! Hey, what's that? What else do I see? You have a Kokopelli in your garden? What's the story on that?

    Patty, right now it's like a fashion in Germany to put such rosty things in to the garden as the decoration. My wife, she likes it and we have few of them. To be honest, I didn't know his name and meaning.

    The Kokopelli is a fertility deity and a trickster in the lore of some Native American cultures of the Southwestern United States. There are many funny stories about this particular character, such as that he would act scared when the warriors would prepare for war - so he would be left behind and then he would use his time to "comfort" the women... Again, he is a fertility deity... I understand, though, that the fertility crosses over to agriculture, so it's appropriate for him to be in your garden!
