This plant would be absolutely stunning at the holiday season, but blooms in April and May. My friend from Cornell Institute for Biology Teacher Days, Rita, gave me a cutting of this plant a few years ago. Time passes and I do lose track of such events. After rooting the cutting, it was several years before a flower was produced. Well worth it, however!
Right now, there are over 20 magnificent blooms on the plant, each close to 4 inches in length. I took these pictures with a macro lens and tripod during the afternoon light. I think they look delicious!
