Dragon Warrior started to open its flowers today.

The flowers have the same markings on the outer edge of the flower as Red Dragon, the plant it sported from.

Much more interesting than just regular Red Dragon.

This plant is maturing. This season it has 5 scapes. This is the same plant shown in previous years - white pot.

Just a different angle:

The nearly black scapes:

Flower with speckles along the "margin" of the petal. And I noticed looking at the petal edgewise (the flower on the right) the color comes through.

This one looked good today while I was out getting pictures and doing some cross-pollinating.
