That's gorgeous, Larry - such a vibrant red.
I've only seen these as houseplants. Was this growing outside?

beautiful! hope mine recovers, I moved it to the porch and something ate all of the leaves off of it, it is putting on new leaves but will probably be a long time before it blooms again.

Sylvia, yes, this was in a pot outside. They grow year round where I live, but seem to do better in the winter.

Sini, I love red flowers too. In fact, red is my favorite color for winter flowers.

Barbara, I found this in an old folder from January 2009. I was actually playing around with framing in Picasa3 and decided to post it.

Joan, it is pretty bright in the center....made so by the vignette in dark grey around the edge. Since "Picnic" closed their site back in April, I've found most of the features in Picasa3 software (both owned by Google I think???) Barbara (bandsix) got me started on the framing exercises after viewing some of her creative work. She has never said for sure, but I think her middle name is Creative.

Jo, it will probably recover. Summertime is not a friendly time for Calancho. I put mine in the shade, but it is not happy with the heat. Like petunias, they like sunshine, but the heat, not so much!

Thank you Peter. Picasa3 was a big help in making a so-so photo look presentable.
