Re: hum...


I grew them once eons ago.  This is just a 9-pk I picked up at Walmart.
White w/a raspberry eye.  Together with a raspberry Diascia, I used them to
fill in the area where the Colchicum are.  The C's leaves are done, so
there's nothing there til they bloom in October.  They are an upright
variety Andrea.  and I do see some sideshoots developing at the next node
below the flower.
