Vivid mauve-orchid k petals with a deep merlot eye and edging, and green throat rise high above full green foliage. Slow growth rate.

The common name comes from the fact that each flower only lasts for no more than 24 hours- they open in the morning and wither before the following evening- some to be replaced by another flower on the same scape.
