I ordered A. zanlanscianense and it is up and apparently about to bloom.
It is about 2 1/2 ft. tall with a stirrup with 16 narrow leaflets and a
vestigial center leaflet.  The stem is either unmarked or faintly marked
(these notes were taken at dusk).  The flower pops out of the stem about =4"
- 5" below the junction with the stirrup and sticks straight up (it is no=w
only a bud and it looks as if the bloom will not be large - we'll see).
When it was coming up, a sheath rose 6" - 8" before the leaf and stem bro=ke
out.  I have it growing in a pot so I should be able to get a good pictur=e
of it in the next few days.

Hope this is helpful.
