Jon asked about this species so here are a few images.
awesome. I got one a while back and I killed it. It was "growing" behind a leaf of another plant that shielded it from the automated watering system. So, this one never got any water. Apparently, that was not good. Finicky little thing.
Yes, the pesky little things do want water. Automated watering, there is always a price to pay.
Marni, the last photo is another clone, right? Mine is a pale pink one like your last photo.
Tom, yes. It is cryptically named on the image tag, but not exactly easy to see. The specimen plant and the center image are one clone 'Tom' and the paler image is 'Dan'. The always bloom these colors. 'Tom' is the darkest and smallest flowered clone I have and my favorite.
Some of my clones have much larger flowers and larger foliage but all of them are paler. I've almost gotten to the point where I don't have to buy another D. violaceum, but that has been a long time coming. Hence, way too many clones.
Nice plants & pictures!
Nice! do you also have the pendulous variety cyperifolium?
Very nice plant!
Thanks to all for the nice comments.
Peter, I've posted the other form on a separate thread.
