    i think i have to say sarr flowers are one of the prettiest out there!!! i have a question can you tell just by looking at it how old the plant it? and this was my question that wasnt answered in the previous topic...do you think it is possible to grow sarrs outside in zone 6 with mulching in the winter?

    I know people who grow S. alata and S. leucophylla in Canada all year round, so, yes.

    I'd start with S. purpurea ssp purpurea if you're in a northern clime, and add more if you're successful with those.

    Nice flower.

    How do you get your pictures to post? I am using the same site but can't get them to work to save my life! Sorry for going off topic.
