I don't know the abbreviation HNF but Explosion in the Paint Factory is a fast growing plant in my garden.
Hi Nightlily, HNF is an abbreviation for "Heavenly New Frontiers". I don't have it but I did purchase a single fan of 'EITPF' and hoping it's a vigorous grower here.
Thanks for the explanation - I do know Heavenly New Frontiers but I assume that it was never imported in the EU so it is out of reach, no matter how much you are willing to pay for it.

Also, I saw on a FB group that Blame it on the Rain is not coming out looking much like the photos we were seeing when it came out in 2019. Has to be a disappointment for the people who paid $$$ at that point.
It's listed as "sold out" on this Belgian site so presumably did make it to Europe:

I planted Pink Stripes in March, I probably won't see anything this year.
