    20210331_184135.jpg First time blooming. I bought this as a 3 bulb division 3 years ago.
    I leave it in full sun and kept it outside when it hit 30° this winter. Just brought her in last night to enjoy the fragrance. Shes been in bloom for a little over a week now and the Sun has started to scorch the lower flowers.

    You may be thinking that the lower flowers are scorched, but the white lip of the flower often becomes yellow as the bloom ages.

    Yes of course! I'm in Florida and the open Sun is brutal. It rarely rains and everything dries out in a day.
