For some odd reason, the plant decided to open up again - this time in October after temps have already plummeted to near freezing levels. I was really shocked to see two buds last weekend, and over the course of the week, they've opened, bloomed and faded away.
The lifespan of the glorious flower is only 24 hours....so short but so breathtaking while it lasts!
