What a stunner! Is there a perfume?

It is a bit lovely, isn't it? Couldn't bear to see it lurking dry & unloved among the discounted African violets...
No smell - relies on looks alone.

P - I have been feeding it choice treats & telling it how gorgeous it is... could be trouble.
SR - that's what's worrying me - that & the dessicated remnants of rotted root & the new flower spike - think it may be having its last hurrah...

Maybe not a last hurrah, but gratitude. I grow paphs myself. Mine are all yellow flowers, so I am impressed with the wine dark colour of yours. Blooming is a sign that all is right with its world..I think.

Oh, hello. :)
You're back! Would planting hellebores work in your yard d'you think?

Caine says:

Hello. :) Hellebores might work. Zone 4s can be dicey, it all depends on the winter. This winter would have killed them. I might try and get ahold of some Death Camas (Zigadenus venenosus) as they are native here.

Right now, I'd settle for just about anything with colour that wasn't a fir or pine. ;)

That is a very pretty flower. Love the colour.
