Plants are looking good! The ciliosum types don't like me - I was thinking of retrying this one, but looked at my regular one, it is just 2 small chicks and very sad looking...just too wet here in Seattle and if I make the soil very fast draining, they dry up in our summer droughts, and I can't be watering every day

I also have a photos from Fernwood for 2003 and 2004 for S. ciliosum ssp. galicicum. I will download them when I get back home this afternoon.

Great photo you posted.

Lynn has a good picture in the DB of one of these, I wonder if she managed to grow it up nice and healthy.
I think Dirt posted a really nice picture of one of these in the past. I think it prefers that sort of climate.
