    I've always found this species to be very hard to capture. You've proven me wrong.

    I've seen some that are more rosy. These are really purple. Maybe it has to do with the temperature?

    Thank you Marni! And yes, not easy to make a decent picture of these tiny flowers...

    I have two clones. One is the clone 'Stalky' and the other is one that Walter Teague collected. They are slightly different colors and always bloom that color consistently when growing side by side.
