The Tiniest Hulthemia

This is by far the smallest Hulthemia seedling that I have grown.  The height of the plant is not as tall as the thickness of my hand.  There are two open blooms, a third bloom opening, and a 4th bud about to open.  I cannot yet tell whether or not there will be a blotch.  Even so, just for the sake of it's novelty, I will continue to watch this one as long as it survives. At least it won't take up that much extra room!

  3. Thanks Song!

    Kim you are funny - though I do like your idea of putting it on a 4 inch tree!

    Reflections, I haven't seen a blotch, but the petals are so small, I am not surprised. If it survives, I will hold it until next year to check, as blotches always are more pronounced after their first year.

  4. Hey, is this little guy still living?

    Seems to be a hard opponent for "Si", "Hello", "Moti" and so on :D

    Er, autumn I'm going to visit the USA... is i possible to get a persica(or persica-hybrid) from you? Because in Europe it's very hard to get... and i prefer your seedlings to "Eyes for you" etc ;)
