I have heard they call it Pink V because somewhere in the flower it makes a V. Just wondering if you have seen it?

The V has to do with the shape of the cane's actually, it had nothing to do with the flower itself.

Dan - that is one symmetrical bloom. Lovely color.

Donna - I can't believe your Dr. Moy is blooming already. Mines have never bloomed in the 5 years that I have had them. I transplanted a few to a sunnier spot and keeping my fingers crossed for at least one bloom this year.

rob this is the first set of flowers in july they all dried up so i cut them back to the ground. there were already babies coming up around them so i am not sure if by cutting the older ones it gave them more energy or not.
