I have several Achiminees that I'd be willing to trade for colors I don't have. I am looking for yellows, reds, oranges & peach colors or anything else interesting. I have a few of a lovely pink called Charm, and a few of a white called Snow Princess that had a tiny bit of purple & a yellow eye. Last year was my first year to grow her, and she was supposed to be Snow White, so not sure if the lovely purple blush will be there again this year or not, but either way, I like her. I also have a lot of a beautiful purple NOID given to me by my late Great Aunt, that I fondly call Aunt Elsie in memory of her. She gave me the start of it over 40 years ago. It is a very vigorous sturdy rhizome, very easy to grow & both blooms heavily & produces a heavy crop of rhizomes. All those plants & blooms on the purple picture came from only 2 Aunt Elsie rhizomes! That's all I planted in that water can! Very reliable rhizome. Pictures below. Anyone interested in trading, please tree mail me. Thanks. Thank You!

Greg, they are so easy. In fall, about mid October I stop watering and allow the pot to completely dry up. The foliage will die down, and the rhizomes will go dormant. Just place them in a cool basement or closet of your home. Some will put them under their house if they have an area that does not freeze. A root cellar would also work, any place that is freeze proof for the winter. Store your pots there undisturbed for the winter. Then come spring, wake them and start watering them. You can separate the rhizomes at this time and share with friends and make more pots if you wish, or just water & grow.

Purple is all I have left now to trade. Local folks here have been very interested in the rhizomes and have taken all the white & pink that I had. But I have just a few purple left. They have been very popular
