There has been a change in the database for S. 'State Fair'. We definitely have an incorrect plant under this name. It has been circulating for many decades.

This is what is being sold in the U.S., but please note, this is an incorrect plant.


This is what it should look like.


Obviously a very different plant.

I will have to find a place to use this wonderful fuzzy NOID in my containers or a border planting. I so love it.

No chance of mixing them up by description and photo. Sighing!

thank you to have this corrected!

The 'State Fair' we have in Germany look like this:

April 6. 2015:
Thumb of 2016-01-27/turini/07f9f1

July 24. 2015:
Thumb of 2016-01-27/turini/24a7c2

August 22. 2014:
Thumb of 2016-01-27/turini/722449

Sometimes it is pure grey, hardly any other color

That is beautiful Wolfgang.

Please feel free to question any of the entries is you see something that does not appear to be correct. It is good that we can all work together.
