    April, If it was indoors, then that could account for the white flower. The lighting inside a Lowe's, isn't the same as direct sun, and its effect on plant/flower coloration. I would like to see a pic of this flower opening in full sun. P. ionantha has a purple center in the throat. P. ionantha is an ESA listed plant, and hasn't been TC'ed that I know of. If anyone has any information on any TC'ed p. ionantha's, let me know. I could use some more.

    Every primuliflora (err... P. primuliflora... must avoid pingman's red marker [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]) flower I've had so far has started out white, and then the petals slowly got more and more purple around the edges.

    Strange. Mine have always been light purple. They grow in full sun, no shade.

    I bought two plants. One started out white and ended up light purple. the other was light purple from start to finish. Awhile back I initiated a topic, asking about this phenomenon. I'll have to dig it up.

    Jimscott..your kitty is upside-down. Did you give him some catnip?

    I went to the local Lowe's here in IL, and it was dismal. Dismal, I tell you! Well, there were mostly some great looking fly-traps, really large and healthy looking. There was one Darlingtonia, and one Ping.

    There were these small terrariums with a sundew, a nepenthes and one other cp all jammed together. $9. They had all been up-ended, it looked like. I asked if they were going to get any more in this season, and was told no.

    I may go back next weekend and get some fly-traps. Some of them looked really good. April
