    I look forward to seeing Bass Gibson bloom. Lovely, not a fast one to increase but wow it looks super in a clump!

    I wanted Bass Gibson for years, but it was so expensive even years and years after its introduction. Finally I was able to buy one fan on the Lily Auction. Fortunately, that one fan thrived and now I have a nice little clump.
