Oooh, I like that DR!!
Don't remember seeing that in the catalogues, but I'll keep an eye out for it

There's a lovely photo of the plant covered in flowers in Diana Miller's book

quite the xerophyte as well... although it has handled our tremendous amounts of rain this year.
i think we've had 20+ inches of rain since Feb.

Wow, that's a lot!
We've had an unusually wet year too, although I'm in almost the driest part of the UK

Willacoochee, GA(Zone 8b)

well southern Georgia despite being zone 8b much like alot of the UK... it tends to be alot hotter and wetter.
we get 55-60 inches of rain a year, and 6months out of the year it is 90-95 degree averages. The winter is inconsistent as well it might be 28degrees at night and than be 65 or 70 during the day...

nice long growing season, but it has its challenges

Antrim, Northern Ire, United Kingdom(Zone 8b)

is this plant for sale? what other species are for sale? would you mail some to the UK? does xerophyte mean no water needed?

Willacoochee, GA(Zone 8b)

everything is for sale.
yeah, i think i have this one going for $4.50 us funds...
i know i know, breaking the bank.
In my experience mailing to the Uk, it's best to fill a small box so to speak... Might be like 8-10 plants.

yeah, xerophyte means it needs little water. I hardly ever watered mine, of course now in the ground it gets plenty.
