I am having a hard time keeping this plant under control. It would be nice if it stayed as one plant, but it keeps sending up little plants and then the thing becomes a messy looking jumble. Sad I do not know how well they hold up in the mail, but if anyone wants one/some of the small ones for the price of a small flat rate box (via paypal or whatever), send me a tree mail. Or if you are dying to have the large one maybe i could get it into a large flat rate box... Shrug! Following is the pic of the giant one I dug up and the size of the smaller offsets.

Haha, you always get rid of things I want shortly after I buy them elsewhere.

Bet the bloom stalk on it is gorgeous. I know I've seen them in the larger containers. http://tropicalsinzone7.blogspot.com/2013/11/some-end-of-sea...

Sent you a tree mail I had two very big ones for years. We had a bad winter and they died. I like it in my cactus garden.

Thank you Valley. I am running around trying to replace the winter kill. I have gardened for a zone 7 for so many years and we had a zone 4 winter this year. Confused

This was right on time. I was looking at them at the nursery this week and was going to get them this weekend. I love this plant with my cactus. When they are done blooming I still have color.

I will take whatever she has big little or in between. I love the plant.

Patty grows such nice plants. Good to know they found a most wonderful home.

Our winter was also much colder than what we are used to. I lost a few things.
