    I like this picture. The petals remind me of a modern-art mobile I might see hanging in the atrium of an office building or museum.

    What a wonderful plant for my HY collection – as I am a little ‘schizo’ myself. I hope I can find a good supplier for this one!

    I have this growing luxuriantly on a trellis around my patio. It’s 10 years old and finally flowered last year and this year- one flower only! But worth waiting for.

    Unless I’m sorely mistaken, those mobile-like bits aren’t petals but bracts (though I can’t tell exactly what the bracts are subtending – seem to me there should be more of them). The unopened flowers are those little yellowish clumps in the middle of the photo.

    Here is this species at the Birmingham, Alabama Botanical Garden in early May.
