    I like bright, colorful flowers, like the ones you'd see as decoration in the '60's: Johnny Jump Ups, Morning Glories, Iris, Gladiolas, Crocus - and my favorite is the Pansy. Yup, love those little faces. And yes, I'm in touch with my feminine side.

    Darcie, have you ever gotten near a grove of skunk cabbage? Peeeee-uuuu! I was scared to get close to them while hiking around Humboldt.

    Symplocarpus foetidus, gotta love that skunk cabbage! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I love Aroids, Especially Arisaema and Drancunculus and the Sauromatum. I LOVE Native orchids like Aaron stated, specially C. acaule and C. reginae! C. parviflorum var. parviflorum is also a beauty. I grow the other orchids like the weeds Phalenopsis and Oncidium. Also a fan of hot hot peppers, especially Cayenne, Jalapeno and Red Hungarian Giant Hots. Habernaros are the god and I leave them just to look at and admire.

    LOL, yes, I have and they don't smell unless you break the tissues of the plant. They are the first plants to poke out of the snow each spring in the woods at the back of our farm [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    It would have to be an orchid: Brassavola digbyana! Its franged lsrge white-greenish flower with a strong scent of citronnelle in the evening is something that I can't get tired of... But I love Stapelia too, Tacca, Passiflora... the list can be long :P

    I always dream of finding skunk cabbage in the wild. I've saw impressive photos of this plants making the snow melting (for about 1' deep') to expose its flowers in spring... wow!

    I'd say my favorites have to be bulbs; outdoor and indoor. Amaryllis are probably at the top of the list. Mine are just now starting to send up scapes.
