    One of my backyardigan, the dweller of the backyard. The plant grows vigorously, but the flowers not last long enough.
    I have another one in buds too.

    New to me! And now it only has 1 "T".

    Do you count the time in hours or days?

    Thanks for removing a t
    I might be wrong about how long the flowers last. They have just opened this morning. And while I was taking pictures a flower dropped. Seems that's an abnormal condition. Will update later...
    And here is the dropped flower

    It looks like it is a huge den. I love the orange/peachy color and star-shaped blooms. Great plant!

    Actually it's not that huge Greg. The longest stalks are less than 50 cm.
