    2 new U. sandersonii (typical and blue)

    Well here are my newest additions. I hope they will be ok because USPS was stupid and sent them all over the country before getting them to me. They were sent from Seattle, WA area to New Jersey on the frozen east coast before sending back to Palm Springs. Maybe USPS is trying to mismanage funds so they too can be bailed out by the government.

    The blue form is in flower, but both have additional flower spikes.

    I have read that these are supposed to spread and multiply quickly. With any luck, next time this year I should have some that I could divide and share.

    It was not the shipper. It was the postal service. The address was right on the label, but the postal service thought it needed a tour of the US before getting to me. The shipper was very helpful during this process.

    A little winter weather should not hurt it much, might make the plants go into a winter rest thou. So if they stop growing don't worry too much about it. I've only had my sandersonii's for a few months but the growth rate is pretty fast.

    All my flowers promptly dropped when they arrived, but the typical is flowering again.

    Everyone should have little bunny ears!!!

    I've received about 8 Utric's from nursury's/E-bay and such and the portion size is shameful.......I'd say 6 of 8 were under 1" X 1". Which makes no sense, there is not a huge market for these guys and everyone of the 8 has tripled in size in a few months.
