Lynn, your Grunrand is certainly interesting. I went to Patty's and then to Bev's and found Several of Lynn's and also Twitcher's. This plant has some odd behaviors and colorations doesn't it?

This is the first time it has bloomed for me. I found the bloom stalk most interesting. I got it in 2011 from Edelweiss Perennials. I have loved it from the beginning. It has such a beautiful waterlily form to the rosettes, and has beauty year round. I just removed the bloom stalk yesterday and replanted the offsets so they wouldn't suffer through winter with the dead rosette. Hopefully they will make it through okay.
It does seem to be mostly green in the late fall and early winter. I will try to remember to take photos for November, December and January.
