    Grow this in a pot, plant the pot in the ground to overwinter it. Four flowers this year, but one is hidden round the back of the plant.

    And in a park-like setting. Nice blooming.

    Thanks folks.
    Egoista - I have a Cyp. parviflora var. pubescens, but its not very happy unfortunately. I think its substrate was too dense, so i replanted it in a coarse sand and perlite mixture. Hope it recovers for next year. I plan on obtaining a couple more Cyps in the autumn. Its great being able to have them outdoors all year long!

    I think the new mixture can be good, we use a multi-mixture with vermiculite-seramis-perlite-bark medium and fine-leca- with a little of soil.
    I think that in Sweden is more umid than here, so the compost mix must be more drained!
