Paramongaia weberbaueria....alas this year their splendor is on display only to fellow overwintering tropicals!
Other years, as they flower they get to come out to the lobby of the Administration Building and strut their stuff in public. P. weberbaueri is a dramatic winter-flowering (South American) Amaryllis relative. As beautiful as the flower is, the light floral fragrance surpasses it.
