    This plant was in the group that Clark wanted to get rid of, so I kept it to see what it might look like. It’s in spike!

    Here’s the spike today, I put the plant under a light to hopefully boost it a bit since it was in a shady spot before

    The bud is still growing, but now I’m traveling to New Mexico to visit my mother for two weeks. I have a feeling it’s going to flower when I’m gone, so I took it to work where someone can water it and take pics if it flowers

    I was going to suggest you take it to your sister and I could pick it up from there!

    ;) I couuuuuld.....

    sadly, I just discovered that it’s too early at the Dallas airport for barbecue, they’re only serving breakfast (crying)

    spoke too soon! There was a new place near my exit gate, not listed on the restaurant page, and they opened up for lunch just as I arrived! :D

    Please post a photo of the flower when it blooms. Here's one of our Phrag. longifolium fma album 'Fox Valley Mint' (x self) first bloom seedlings for comparison. P. longifolium fma album 'FVM' (x self).JPG

    Nice image! I hope the plant cooperates and is very slow to flower. I won’t be where it is until dec 8th though I have asked a few people at work to water it and send me pictures if it opens before I get back. I don’t think it will approach opening before a week passes

    Well! I didn’t think the flower would open before a week went by, but my supervisor at work sent me these two images this morning. It’s a really big flower! I still won’t be back there til Sunday so I hope the flower holds

    Very nice! Sorry you had to miss the grand opening. Form and color are excellent for this form of the species.

    Tom, Are these all descended from a single clone?
