Re: [IGSROBIN] sluggo .. and Spring


Glad it was the Spring part you emphasized! It's a real joy to see a plant
like P. appendiculatum in this foul weather. I've only got a seedling plant
of it but - wait till next year! How old is your plant? Tuberous cutting or
a seedling?

I got my kicks a month ago when a young P. fulgidum started to bloom. Great
color - but not quite what I had expected, more scarlet and less of that
deep blood red I remember. That's why I like seedlings, always something new
to hope for. I did see P. sidoides (the real one) open a few days ago. Black
red. Also worth seeing.

I suppose you've been getting this terrible weather as well. It was 40 F
here while we had a hailstorm this morning. At least you just got the rain.
For April this has to be a record. Lucky I've got some protection over my
best ones.

San Diego, California

I looked out my bathroom window and saw that P.appendiculatum was blooming.
The sight of yellow blossoms in the glowing sunshine after a dark gray
morning made me catch my breath. On closer inspection I found that the hard
rain of early morning actually knocked off some of the petals.
