    Wow, when they get that high I suppose, they must start thinking about flying!

    and I know it sounds weird to say, but "Phragenstein is a beauty!"

    Phragenstein is Steve's Sorcerer's Apprentice, Colin. Its flower spike is about 13' tall and the crazy thing has been blooming continuously for a gazillion years. I see it's bored and has decided to try out couture blossoms...

    PS - if you search Steve's threads for Phragenstein, you might actually catch a picture of the beast!
