I just discovered that one of my five-year-old, seed-grown Cephalotus "Double-Ribbed" plants was to be the first of its lot to send up a flower stalk in 2009 -- and on the first day of Spring, no less. I usually have to wait until High Summer in Northern California for that to occur.
I will do my damndest to collect seed when that time comes . . .
