|Could this be one of the Helianthemum? http://www.google.com/search?q...|

You've done it Helianthemum ‘Fireball’
It is exactly it.
T& M sells plugs, Maybe they also sell seeds. It is just so pretty.
Wonder if it will grow in a pot?

|Helianthemum for sure but am now thinking Cerise Queen is the cultivar.|
How do I know for sure?
One nursery has the picture as Fireball, another as Cerise Queeen. I have looked at several now and am still not sure.
Edit to say I now believe to be Cerise Queen. I have ordered from Amazon so, will have my wishes fulfilled.
Problem is I don't know where I can plant it .... hee hee

| Good going Marilyn. I love the Helianthemums. I have a wonderful orange flowered one named 'Ben Nevis'. |
It is blooming right now.
