    I just bought this yesterday. This is the first time I've owned a Gisela and I must say it's a great little plant! Since I live in zone 3, this plant (having been greenhouse grown) is blooming about 2 weeks before most of the Cyps in my garden even start to emerge (though my macranthos is peeking up).

    Thanks for looking!

    Spectacular! I didn't know Hole's sold Cyps! I wonder if any nurseries in Calgary do? I'll be there in 3 weeks.

    Thanks everyone! Todd, yes Hole's has quite a nice selection of them. I couldn't tell you about Calgary though...

    Fantastic hybrid! Is it originally a Frosch brand rhizome?

    Kentuckiense, thanks! I wondered that too but I don't know where it originates from.

    A very nice plant. It is such a great hybrid, usually clumping quickly and with great vigor!

    We have a bunch of these blooming right now at the garden (for sale) and I had no idea just how small they are in person. I always thought they and also the parviflorums were much much larger blooms because of all the great photos posted here. Who knew!?

    Hey Heather,

    They are quite small aren't they? They're so darn cute though!
