Hi,
Dono't know if this comment should go here, but isn't this contest 66? :-k 64 was seedlings.
Feel free to delete this when it gets fixed.

PS Though the contest is red, I don't mean to cause a blush from embarassment.

Well since I only just moved my plants out for the season, I had to pull an image from last fall. Here is Matucana krahnii which I'm quite sure I got from GeneS at one of the OCCSS meetings.
