Marilyn will you add the new bloom photo to this thread, along with a photo of the leaves that belong to this bloom?

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! You've done it Helianthemum ‘Fireball’

It is exactly it. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you.

Thanks Hurray!

T& M sells plugs, Maybe they also sell seeds. It is just so pretty. Lovey dubby

Wonder if it will grow in a pot?

Helianthemum for sure but am now thinking Cerise Queen is the cultivar.

http://www.milliwaysnurseries.com/Helianthemum%20Cerise%20Qu...

How do I know for sure?

One nursery has the picture as Fireball, another as Cerise Queeen. I have looked at several now and am still not sure.

Edit to say I now believe to be Cerise Queen. I have ordered from Amazon so, will have my wishes fulfilled.

Problem is I don't know where I can plant it .... hee hee
