I adore this plant! Last year I only had 2-3 flowers - this year over 20.
I guess this is a rather uncommon species found in China, Burma, Vietnam and Thailand. My plant is about 9 inches tall with 1 inch flowers that smell something like lily-of-the-valley to me.

My favourite Den. A friend has one, and although I've never seen it in person, it was love at first sight to me..the fringes and fragrance (lotv, fave fragrance)...out of this world!

Beautiful - love those fringes! Mine is in bud with a total of 4 inflorescences. Hope it opens in time for the Longwood Gardens show.

Thank you. Glad you like my little guy. When this plant first bloomed last year, I think I had two flowers. It was instant love, so right now with over 20 of them I can barely take my eyes off this one.

Calvin - This one isn't difficult if you follow the "no water thing" from Oct 31 to Valentines Day. That's what Jay's site told me to do and that's what I've done.

Carol - Without a doubt this is my favorite plant and the fragrance is just so nice. You have to stick your nose into the flowers to smell it, but it's so worth the effort.
