'Black Arrowhead' (Roberts-N., 2002) is a fabulous grower, clumps up quickly and is fertile both ways. I highly recommend this cultivar to anyone who favors the spidery-looking blooms.

I have this DL since last Autumn.
Sadly it is one of the very small plants that I received, so I think it will take a while before it will flower Sad
(but you never know, it may surprise me this Summer! Hilarious! )

I took a look at the childplant, My buddy Landon, : wow! Another DL for my wishlist Lovey dubby

My Black Arrowhead is not in the best location which may contribute to its relatively slow growth for me.
Blooms look great.
No report on fertility.
Love what you teach and teach what you love!
