Gostei do nome. Mas eu acho que o diabo jamais usaria sapatinhos rosa.

Thank you very much, Scott. It is good to know its real name. Gilma, the expression "do diabo" (Devil's...) is often used for pink or red flowers in portuguese or spanish languages.

Is that the name? strange name for such a beauty!!
