These are nice looking flowers, the locals say that after the first year they will be a solid lavender poker that looks closely akin to a pine cone.
The folilage to these plant are very impressive much like a Christmas flower that has a large bulb and produces 3-4 huge flowers atop some large leaves and a huge stem. These, flowers are about the size of and look like morning glory with feelers extended out. To me the foliage is impressive but the flowers are a disapointment. They are all around the base of the temple.
