    That is a very reasonable size for Gongora. Nice color, too. Does it bloom multiple times over a long blooming season?

    Very nice color, many are rather washed out. I have 2 clones and the leaves on both are much shorter than yours. Perhaps if I grew it warmer?

    I hope Marni I didn't get cross? I think I read but was it your presentation were it was suggested they grow bigger when warmer, saying this yes my has rather warm in summer but from the other hand cool in winter... colour is rather as pictured special the very last one,if not darker...and yellow is so vibrant in contrast make the flowers in my opinion very attractive.
