This is the only stand of this beautiful flower that I have ever seen. I have been observing the stand for 10 or 15 years. It is the only time I have ever observed this flower . . . note slender stem petals.

It is, of course, probable that both flowers are often noticed by nature lovers when the blooms are not present for positive identification.
