  1. Valerianna says:

    Wow… a stunning flower.

  2. Jane (epocktextiles) says:

    so spectacular & unusual – haven’t seen one since when I was growing up and they were growing in our garden in Brisbane

  3. Eliene says:

    She is truly beautiful…I have never seen one in flower before. Not so good for Melbourne I’m guessing Mo!

    • Mo Crow says:

      Hi Eliene, you could try it in a really warm protected North East facing spot with no chance of frost a straw mulch surrounding her in winter & lots of water in summer

    so beautiful. the center looks like a petunia.

  5. Bronwyn says:

    What a beautiful flower. Must remember it for when I make my new garden.

  6. Dana says:

    What an exotic beauty! A flower like that would stun the natives in my neck of the woods.

    • Mo Crow says:

      Seattle would be too cold in winter (it’s a native of Mexico) but you could grow it in a pot in a protected morning sun spot and bring it indoors in winter.

  7. Anita says:

    Fabulous flower – and photograph! From Anita (also Pisces)

    • Mo Crow says:

      What day is yours? Being a Piscean can be some trip but it’s easier now at 59 than in my 20’s … I was sooooo ridiculously trusting & naive! isn’t the flower the most stunning thing and it keeps making more!

  8. Carol says:

    Almost unbelievably beautiful, Mo! I think I have one but it hasn’t flowered yet, so maybe I’m not looking after it well enough. It nearly got squashed in the tree lopping debacle so not sure if it will survive.
