Positive dmj1218 On Jun 1, 2008, dmj1218 from west Houston, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

This is probably the largest blooming Habranthus robustus hybrid or strain per bulb size and has short blue-green foliage; this one is hardy to zones 8a. Blooms early summer with large pinkish-lavender-whitish blooms and nice long buds.

This strain is seed stable and blooms in 2 years from seed--really easy from seed.
