    A very nice seed grown Dracula vampira. This flower is just a bid under 8" and is very flat.

    Dracula vampira 'Zorba' can top 10", but 8" isn't too shabby. This one has a nice full form, is dark, and flat. I was very pleased with it.

    I love the coloration of this species. These pictures really accentuate the "face" in the flower well.

    Wow! Still one of my favorites and hopefully I'll figure out a way to grow this one and give it a try.
