    Flowers are about 3/4 wide and the arching to pendant spike continues to bloom for months as it elongates and may branch.

    That's lovely, Marni. How big does the plant get?

    John, the plant is in spike again now so I'll try to remember to check. As I remember, it is mostly a tan with a pinkish blush.

    Nat, the plant gets about 10 or 12".
