It has recently come to my attention that my 'Pacific Rim' is incorrect.
Apparently it was the color of the flowers that was the give away. Compared to the actual cultivar it's obvious. I've only sent this out to 1 member, so sorry, Greg.

My bloom looks like this:

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort!

Your blooms are not yet fully expressed, at least that's how I see your picture. Let's see how they look in a few days. Do you have a picture of the main plant?
Where did you get it from? (Unless you prefer not to say)

If it turns out to be legit, I'll name that nursary.
I'll run out after this delish tuna on toast, and take a few new shots of the blooms.

So, even if the flowers were spot on, which they're not, there's no hiding the length of those stolons. Sighing!
