    It looks like a lovely arched entrance to a fairy cave. Amazing all the detail in one little blossom!

  8. Judy my hubby wants to know when yours typically bloom and for what duration?? Sun or shade ?

    • They are about six inches tall right now so it will be a little while. I’ll email you when they start. I have them in mostly shade. They can take some sun but not hot afternoon sun. I have pink and white and really want a red one. They can also be divided easily so you can spread them around. They are just the most magical plant to me that they can produce a bloom that is so gorgeous.The foliage stays green until the severe heat of the summer comes and they start to turn yellow so I usually just trim them back to the ground and wait for the next spring.

      • We saw one in bloom on Saturday in Lewes DE, and he was surprised it was so early. I showed him your pictures and it sparked a nice memory of his childhood and “mom’s” flowers. Nice to know they would work in the shade. I have to consider them for my shady front yard.

  11. I have to apologize for the bleep of error last week. I have Foxtail FERNS…not flowers at my new house. I didn’t want you to think I have dangerous plants at my home. LOL! Your photo is amazing of this darling plant.

  15. Gorgeous! I know they grow well in the shade, but do these flowers like a hotter climate or a more mild mediterranean climate?
