This is the first year it has bloomed like this. Any suggestions on its care also? It kinda looks ragged.

beautiful flower.

looks like it might need a little more water. Also look for either snails or a caterpillar that looks like this one. feel around in the soil that is where they would be in the day time.

It could be an Ackerman II. Check it out on the Plant Files or on the EpiForums gallery. The bloom looks right and the bloom time is right. bob
