    This has the most intense color I've seen of all the plants I have.
    The photo captured the color quite precisely.
    The plant is small and it seems like it will be a picky grower.

    That's a spectacular pink! I may have to go looking for one of these. And congrats on getting the color right in the photo - that is precisely the sort of pink that can be so hard to capture.

    Hmm, appears more purple to me. Wonder if it is a difference in monitors or color perception. Ah well, in any event, nice flowers. I particularly like the white tips to the petals and how they contrast to the rest of the flower.
