*CORRECTION, it was collected in QUILLABAMBA!*

Hi Guys,

   I wasn't able to share this with you guys during the time it bloomed so I
wanted to share now!  This is a beautiful form of H. puniceum (so we
think!?) from Peru!   It blooms from small bulbs several times a year!  It
has bloomed three times in the past nine months..

   The red is incredibly beautiful and deep with the throat being an aster
green extending into a star!  Truly a choice form!  It was collected in
Quillabamba, Peru.  Does anyone disagree with the ID?
