    I got this last fall when Mrs Perner came to town. We've had unseasonably cool temperatures so it hasn't really been tested yet. It had a spectacular root system. Bareroot it looked like a string mop.

    My favorite type of this species, big, bold, beautifully colored. If you keep it dry enough in winter, it should do OK. Where about are you? Your name suggests in the far north...

    Well done, I like it very much.
    As to Ottawa, compared with Europe it isn't situataed that far north - its latitude is 45°25' N. Compared with Europe North Italy is situated at a latitude 45°N.
    My town in the middle of Germany is situated 50°16' N.

    It is a regular one and it's been open for a week or so. It is quite dark and that pleases me. I didn't self it since I want the plant to establish properly nd in any case, I'm not into propagation.

    I've seen their nursery stock (made a video if you want to see their nursery back in 2013), and they only use quality flowers for propagating. Even in the wild nearby the nursery C. tibeticum with a white base color are quite beautiful, and the shades from darker to lighter are not that pronounced. Flower shape, and to some degree size, are variable however. I much prefer these clear pink/purple tones over the wine/maroon shades of yellow base colored flowers. So if you buy from Wenqing you are not only guaranteed of buying a laboratory produced plant, but one with pleasing color and shape as well.

    Yes, I've watched that video a couple of times plus several others. They're great! Thanks for posting them.
