    It's been too long since I've used my real camera, so cell phone pics will have to suffice for the time being.

    I honestly did not realize this was in bloom until the flowers opened! It sits in a very bright corner of my cool greenhouse. It only has grown two canes (simultaneously in the same year) in the 5-6 years I've had it. It has bloomed the last 3 years. I love it.

    Very nice blooms. I have the pedunculatum variety. I didn't realize how much smaller it was than the other varieties.

    Your flowers are tighter and nice than mine.

    That is really nice.

    With your description of growth and blooming it sounds like a cane will bloom multiple years?

    Hello Kelly, yes, it seems canes will bloom multiple years.
