I don't think Lynn has it, but I could be wrong. I remember that one obscenely awesome picture posted a long time ago in that old "must have" thead. It made everyone's mouths water. Only recently have a few more images surfaced, as you can see above. I don't think it has crossed the Alantic yet, and I doubt it will this year. Speculation only.

I actually surmised that Lynn didn't have one...yet, when I saw that the database photos were taken by someone else. I assumed (and I could be wrong) that if Lynn had an 'Interstellar" she would have included at least one photo of hers, photo-hound that she is... Whistling

You are both correct. I do not have 'Interstellar', but I sure would like to have it.
Maybe Wolfgang can tell us a little bit about this beautiful semp?

would like to tell you more as I know. Last fall I was in a nursery, where I got it from. No plants for sale. Everybody wants this sort. In Europe and US and in other countries. I have even inquires from China. It will take longer time to produce the wanted amount of offsets, I assume.

Interstellar has been on my wish list from the first day Wolfgang posted the photo. It actually seems to be on fire in the third pic . Did this photo win a prize in the ATP photo competition last year ? Coincidentally I had just ordered Interstellar from Wolfgang yesterday, but it doesn't sound like good news is forthcoming so I'll just have to resort to begging Sighing!
