Taken yesterday during a break in weather. So pleased with this amazing flower and the way its come on since planting in March. 5 beautiful blooms on this junior plant 😊 with many more buds to open. It seems to love its sheltered, hot spot. Happy Days.

I agree sue, its the layer upon layer of intricate flower work that are so unique, making this exotic flower a show stopper. Every photo I 👀 amazes me too 😍 @lilybee

Thanks Angie, I have read they are edible although under-ripe yellow ones, may cause stomach upsets but wow, yeah these beauties do offer so much as a plant. Maybe worth a chomp just to try 😋 @angiecrazycatlady

Thank you Jane, Rula. Was determined to get a shot yesterday of the 5 flowers. They only seem to last a day or so and today's torrential downpours would have scuppered that idea. @pelly @sabbanrula 💙💙

Thankyou, They take an age to arrive, look absolutely stunning then fade away so quickly. I've never grown one before so any tips to keep in tip top condition let me know please. @sabbanrula @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom @flof1952 @sherrisgarden

Unfortunately, I don’t have any a good advice for you. I have one but I think I was just lucky mine loved its spot in my garden 😅

BTW were you intoxicated by the jasmine? 😄 Did the buds open or are they making you wait a bit longer?

Nice. I think mine's waiting for more settled weather before any more buds open!
