Guess you planted it for the the statement it makes in the garden and not for it's ability to bloom regularly.
Handy you had the camera at the ready for that brief inflorescent show.

You have a wonderful capture of this lovely plant. Well done Herman.

A very good photo indeed, Herman. Could be that you are a few degrees colder where you are, which could inhibit the flowering. Mine developes about 3 to 4 flowering leaves, but we get much hotter than you do in summer. Regards Martin

Not as bad as one at Kew Gardens Herman, that comes into flower every fifty years. But its lovely to see your unusual speciman, and a lovely capture it is too.

A 'bit' suggestive??!!! Grin Jeez, I nearly fell off my flamin' chair ... then realised it was 'just' a flower stamen Blush
Umm ... don't take this the wrong way, but how big is this plant? (And yes, it is a straight up question ... )
11 Nov 2014 5:27PM
That is quite a unusual flower Herman, not sure what to say about it. Well captured I think is all I can say. Blush

Fabulous plant m.deliciosa .... I had never seen one in flower before. I understand that the fruit (flower) takes a year to ripen?? My mom had a great big one growing on the veranda in a pot. Wonder photo Herman. Have a great day. Smile
