Am I "better late than never" with some belated thanks?? That particular plant was grown indoors on a south-facing windowsill. You can see my stubby fingers which are holding the calyx so that the bloom is turned–facing away from the window. That seemed to give it an extra bit of backlighting, and made the white throat more luminous.
