Very impressive flower! You should have something in the photo to indicate the size of the flower. Do you grow it in a greenhouse, or just on the windowsill?

Sue, Stan and I bought it this fall before it bloomed. It just had a bud at the time. We got it in Colorado around October 10, and travelled with it, bud intact, back to Wisconsin. It bloomed around October 25.

The photographic is more or less life-size.
