    This one is blooming out of season this year. Normally blooms 3-5 times a year, but usually in the late summer through early winter. Blooming now on three spikes just far enough apart to not be open all at the same time. Result: more days of flowers and fragrance! The 'below' pic is from a couple years back when it got awarded.

    That is is such a nice color for that species. Let me know if you ever take a division and decide to maybe not keep it!

    That will certainly brighten your day. I beat standing under it and inhaling deeply is dreamy.

    Wow...sometimes I don’t agree with the awards, but this certainly deserves its AM!
