I bought a piece of that plant from SBOE back in 2015 (+/- a year), but lost it in the 2017 freeze.

SBOE no longer has it listed, so if you ever have a division available, keep me in mind.

If it is very rootbound, it might be necessary to cut off the bottom 1/4 to 1/3 of the roots to make it fit into the next pot.

Rth. (Rlc. Lebenkreis x Rth. Elaine Taylor)

First bloom seedling from SVO, blooming in a 3" pot. This grex has not been named yet.

My cell phone camera did not capture the color correctly. It is a 'warmer' red than it appears here.
