These days the plant is being overwhelmed by Ultraviolet Light of the left and Ooh La La on the right.

But the scapes and large dark flowers keep coming.

Purple Bouquet just started to open its flowers. The plant is "buried" between Ultraviolet Light and Ooh La La. Ultraviolet Light has just finished its flower cycle just in time for Purple Bouquet to start-up.
