can anyone help ID this one?

I bought this several years ago and put it on the south side of the house. It never did anything there for me so I moved it two years ago to my mother's farm. I grows on an 8' bamboo tri-pod and finally flowered.

It is currently over the top of the 8' structure and looks like it would keep on going. I bought it labeled Comtesse de Bouchard. NOT!

Absolutely gorgeous. I would love to move it back to my house. My mother says it is fine right where it is (20 minute drive north of my house!)


Thanks Dana

It looks a lot like my Jan Pawel II (John Paul II).

RE: can anyone help ID this one?

I thought John Paul II was a smaller flower. These are 6-8" across.
Either that or my other John Paul II at the house here is not a happy camper.

I wonder if it might not be Miss Bateman. Mine flowered for the first time this year and I thought the plant was mislabeled because they were a pale pink with reddish lavender stamens. But a few days later they turned white & the stamens darkened to a rusty brown.

I went out to measure my last John Paul flower, and it does seem to be more like 4-5" across, but it looks just like that picture!

I'll go with that for now. Thanks
