    I got this one in bloom. What I really like about it is the way the newly opened flowers are lightly colored and they turn a shade of purple! It has a mild smell, pleasent enough, but you have to get right up close to smell it.
    Thanks for looking!

    (The lighter is the newly opened flower.)

    You have a healthy plant with lots of spikes! The color change is always nice, sort of having two plants in one.

    Lovely flowers and the color shift is neat. That one may have to go on my list, I love the white to pink thing!

    I adore this one - just got one actually, but it was a pretty questionable plant, so I'm doubtful about my ability to save it. Happy for you though - yours looks beautiful!

    I had previously only seen pictures of the purple before and didn't realized it was so green when the blooms are young. Now I even like the green better. :-)
