This older cultivar is a real eyecatcher in bloom. Very large blooms that are very striking. Blooms low to the foliage, however.

I was gifted this CV in late September and it has already made a nice recovery and has also added an extra fan or two. I look forward to seeing it bloom next season.

Beautiful blooms but the scapes are too short and the blooms are often down in the foliage.
