    That's a stunning flower. How cool does it need to be during summer nights?

    Beautiful flower what I really want though is for someone to say the name

    I pronounce it: "neo cohn yo ee ah" "hex ap ter ah". Others may have a different suggestion.

    I say it as "neo-cog-nee-ox-ee-ah" "hexa pter ah"

    but I have no idea if that's right

    According to IOSPE, genus was named for C. A. Cogniaux, a Belgian botanist, so the name is French ("g" and "x" silent) - which would indicate to me that Marni has it right.

    I love the color, too. It's so intense
