    Perhaps my favorite Jumellea. It certainly is today.

    How nice! Not a species one sees very often.

    I agree with Jon's assessment. That flower scares me a little. (So of course I love it!)

    Thanks one and all. It is quite amazing how various Jumellea flowers, while seemingly quite similar, are in fact quite different. Subtle differences make one breathtakingly awesome whereas another is just spectacularly fantastic. And some are merely sublime or bodacious. But all of them share the same basic shape! This is one of the things that make Angs the best.
