I think I misspelled the name; should be 'Clair de Lune'
Sorry, I don't have a photo to post right now. I haven't developed
photos I took of my suspected plant this spring. The only photo I've seen
of 'Clair de Lune' is in 'ROOTS' 16(1); spring 2003; p. 6.
A close comparison this spring of my plant to the photo in 'ROOTS'
showed them to be almost identical.
When I saw your photo, it immediately reminded me of my plant. Mine
is a strong grower and heavy bloomer.
I dug that 'ROOTS' issue out today, and that photo does look a bit
different from yours; so, I suspect that your plant may not be the same after
all. On the photo in 'ROOTS' the striping on the hafts comes down around
the beard more and appears to be a bit darker and browner with perhaps abit
more yellow on the hafts. It is difficult to be sure though.
Since it is in 'ROOTS', I would assume that HIPS has the photo in
their data base, but I haven't found a link to it on their web site.
Thanks Dave. Could you post a picture of 'Claire
de Lune' ?
