|Nice, one of my favorite easy to grow species. I see it has hit its peak height.|

|Yes, very short...|
Also blooming today, Super Tsing. I don't know where I got the seed. planted seed on 10-30-09, it said M OP on the label. I asked Rick if he sent the seed, but he said he didn't. I planted the seeds outdoors on that date and I have 4 plants. (NO BAGGY SYSTEM) I forgot about them and the snails got to the flowers. Only one bloomed so far.

|Rather unusual to have the outer three petals colored... very nice.|
Has the same bulbs been blooming repeatedly, or have new ones in the bunch replaced the older ones? It is common for this variety of formosanum to act as a monocarp, but not always.

|There are four (4) buds/blooms in this container. Last year only 3 bloomed. All should bloom this year. Been lucky, same four (4) as far as I can remember. Here are the photos from 2011.|
