Looks like just us 2 think this plant is so cool Pixie! Such a pretty colors in this photo. I have bought comrs of this one at least 5 times, always dormant. Some quite large and expensive too. They just do not come up here. Not even an inch though other kinds I can grow. I am thinking I may give it one more try though. I must be dense not to get the message.
