Kate,

Thank you again for selling us these lovely plants. You took such great care in the manner you packaged and shipped them. We know they'll be happy in their new home!

Glenn, thanks for posting the pics. Always enjoy them. Also wanted to ask is Royanum the same as Rayanum or is this a typo?

Kate helped me expand with a number of very nice varieties a few years back. She has good stuff and is very helpful.
TIA

Yes, 'Royanum" - just my dreadful handwriting on the wrappings. Apologies.

Great photos Glen, and I love your selection.

I've had the same experience as twit, I've received many wonderful new semps from Kate over the last couple of years. One of my favorites is the S. 'Fame Monstrose' I got from her last year. I love watching this semp grow and produce offsets. It's so unusual.

Love my 'Kate' plants. Thumbs up
