We've grown WITCHING ever since it was introduced and yes, the photo
looks like WITCHING, but here in our climate it is a little lighter, and
I'll assume that for you in San Diego, it should also look a tad lighter
than that photo, which does appear a little on the darkish side.

Here it is average at best, usually shorter stalks, usually producing
"smallish" rhizomes but it is a vigorous increaser, AND very unique in

Good luck with it, you WILL enjoy the colors.
