I picked up this Blc. Images x C. Horace 'Maxima' along with a number of other plant at Oak Hill Gardens' super $5 sale on flowering-sized seed-grown plants. It's tried to flower every winter since, but was supremely unhappy in my apartment in Plainfield and always aborted. It seems to like the cool, sun-drenched back room of my house, though, and opened a massive 5" sweetly-scented flower the winter after I moved.
