Here are a few more older varieties I acquired last year that I'm really looking forward to. They're really appealing to me.. not sure why, they just look good!

'Cantina', TB, Byers 1989


'Cherokee Heritage' TB, Nichols 1991 Drooling


'Golden Panther', TB, Tasco 2000


'O'so Pretty', TB, Kegerise 1992

Scott ~ Well, I am also looking forward to seeing both of these. Golden Panther is already established so it will most likely bloom. Cantina is new for me, even though it is an older variety, but I have never seen it other than in pictures, so I hope that it blooms this first year.

Since I have no idea which ones will bloom their first year, I will appreciate them when they bloom. I don't want to post every single one that I planted this year as it would take up too much room. I will, however, post them when they bloom.

I missed a couple of days, so I'll post more than one.

It's already been said by someone else, but I'm wanting to see this beauty too.

Tom.. It did really well here and held up to the wind and Hail this spring Smiling it will be mixed with some of Kieth's plicata's in the future the pink in the falls really stands out when it 1st opens beautiful color combination and a good plant.

Another I'm looking forward to seeing in the spring this one has been really impressive the past couple years in Oregon Smiling and made for a stunning clump.

Good to hear, and thanks to you I might get to see it bloom here next spring. Smiling

Baltimore was one of my bonuses from Keith Keppel, and I am sure looking forward to seeing it too.

I got this one last year (2016) and it sure has increased nicely, so I should have a small clump of it this year if it decides to bloom.


Guess I forgot to add the picture.

Touched by Angels -- Anticipating this one because it is in the Polly-Vi memory bed, and because it is a Maryott. Smiling

Liz ~ I find it interesting that the name, "Who Did It", was because of "parentage unknown"! That is one successful bee pod story! Hurray!
