Nice that you got a bloom from it. Bet it stinks! Does it bloom regularly for you each year? I like these unusual guys!

Rosemarie, you have no idea how much this beauty stinks. The neighbors thought the sewers were backed up! It does bloom each year and now that its in its 3rd year its producing 2 blooms on each plant. Stink only lasts about 2 days but alas...so does the bloom! Definitely garners a lot of attention, everyone believes its a tropical!
