I think this is one that I cut the center out of the rosette to keep it from blooming, but a blooms stalk grew back and really was quite unusual.
You can see that it not only put out blooms, but also offsets from the stalk. Smiling

That is what I found very interesting. I did not know if that was normal or if it really was doing that.

It was desperate to get more babies out there before it died, wasn't it?

I put it on my wish list, along with a few dozen others, so yes, I would love one. Lovey dubby

Perhaps if I can get it together I will prioritize my list better.

Thanks, Hurray! Hurray!
