    It's a late bloomer (September). Remind me in the spring and I'll lift a bit for you. That clump is from a two litre pot which I bought summer 2012. If any more of the K.northiae germinate I could put your name to that too.

      if and when you get them in the right spot they take off like rockets , I had two in pots and struggling , I moved to the front garden where I had a laurel growing its the corner of the house so the soil is awful and just full of stones from when the house was built , but with in weeks they had doubled in size so hopefully 2015 should be flowering .

      The more I have seen the more I want

      how about Moonstone
