    Burma, Thailand, China and Vietnam. 1-1/2 inch very fragrant flowers (similar to Lily of the Valley) on a 12 inch plant. Unfortunately the flowers don’t last all that long – maybe 10 days or so, but this year there were about 50 of ‘em. I’m kinda a small plant guy and every once in a while I get the urge to trade this one away just because of its size. Then it blooms and I fall in love all over again.

    You'd regret giving this away!

    I think he should give it away!:poke: Kevin, you need my address?:D I don't mind to have another clone.

    Serious though, it is a really nice Den. species to have in any collection!

    It's very beautiful, if only the flower last a lot longer. =)

    OK, if I get the urge to compost it, I'll give ya a holler :eek:

    Thanks all. It is a nice plant to have blooming now while we're buried in snow with no spring in sight.
