I don't know if it's a new flower or just new to me, but I had never seen it before this week. Where was it during prom season?! Would have been perfect for all those Rebel Prom Profile types!
It's not an orchid, though it gives them a run for their money, doesn't it? It's actually in the yam family. Who would have guessed?
They were quite pricey, I guess they're only in season briefly so limited supply and slow production raise the price. I'd have to sell them for - you better sit down - $40 a blossom. Smelling salts?
I think that puts them at the single most expensive individual bloom I've ever encountered.
So, two questions:
Beautiful or no?
And, what price beauty?
