    Cool! It looks like a cross between an Orchid and a Daffodill. Is it in any way related to Orchids? It seems to have the Orchid’s signature tounge-thing on the bottom of the flower.

    Mustela: nope, not related to orchids at all. Sorry that I didn’t have the excerpted information from the book online when you asked your question – I needed to get a copy of the book in my hands.

    just wanted to tell you, you do beautiful work, keep it up, don’t let a few spoiled apples bring you down, there are entirely too many critics in this world.
    thanks again

    phillip – thanks for the compliment. I have to say I don’t mind a few criticisms here and there; it just challenges me to be better.

    A most useful write-up as I have a plant (not from Hilliers but from Bridgemere Nursery in the UK) and was wondering where to plant it. I obtained it because I believe it was first introduced to the UK by Charles Maries working for the Veitch Nurseries and I am collecting the plants that he introduced.
    The photograph is excellent as it shows the structure and colour of the flower very clearly.
