Thank you, guys, for the compliments regarding the flowers. I'm trying to keep the hummingbirds and bumblebees away, but it's a losing battle. Neither of them is getting any nectar, so hopefully they'll lose interest before the flowers are either damaged or pollinated.

That's an amazing plant, but I honestly hope that mine doesn't get that big!

The flowers on all three spikes are fully open now. Since the colors were getting washed out in sunlight, I took a picture when the weather became overcast to give a better idea of how dark the colors are.

Clean and fresh. Excellent shapes and colour. I love the look of the bicolor flowers ----- the lower sepals that does the interesting downward bend thing - a Mr Potato Head sensation.
