I love this one! Lovey dubby
Each bloom is a perfect small bitone - great garden plant.
Medium growth rate. Need to try hybridizing with it!
Love what you teach and teach what you love!

I've had this little one for a few years now, and I really love it. And it's fertile both ways, too! I have it in a pot rather than in the ground, and it is a really good plant for me. I highly recommend it!

Thank you, Fred, for creating such a beautiful little gem!
