What a beauty how long does it flower?

From memory about two to three weeks, depending on how hot and sunny the weather is (it comes from South Africa so prefers full sun and well-drained soil)

Very, very unusual - and very, very nice! I love glads and have a few, but nothing like this.

Yes, David, I know it is not the specie plant. I have seen it growing in the wild in South Africa and they are not this colour
