They're all very nice but that Hurtsutissum 'Shirley X Vai Virgens 'Moon Dust' is to die for.
This is the second time it has bloomed for me, and it gets better each time. I'm waiting for it to put out 2 flowers, it is now a 3 growth plant.

Could you post a closer pic of the Hurtsut. cross?? That small glimpse makes me curious...

It was growing in a very strange pattern. One leaf seemed to form as a tube rather than a regular leaf, and much taller than any other leaf on the plant. Finally curiosity got the best of me, I slit it open a bit from the top. Inside were some crushed buds. The first two didn't even open, they were mashed. This picture is about the 3rd or 4th bud to surface. It looks like some more regular looking buds are forming now they they are free. Only time will tell what they will look like. I have never had any other phrag grow like that.

Have any of you had a leaf do that?

I had 2, did surgery as you did & neither growth bloomed but the plants sprouted a couple of new growths & those are fine.

Eric - do you leave it alone? or slit it? If I didn't slit it, the new leaf had trouble getting out & started accordianing.
