Our offerings are 2 feet tall at maturity and have 2 ½ inch, chocolate brown flowers with some yellow barring. When in bloom they are quite a show with each growth having multiple spikes of 15+ flowers. They are easily grown with intermediate temperatures, partial shade and no winter rest. Our plants are mature, blooming size with a minimum of 5 bulbs.
