    Yup - definitely darker - very beautiful! (You've seen Herr Fleischmann's explanation of this - right?)

    How often does your plant bloom? It seems like it was flowering both before & after mine?

    yes. the increased anthocyanin production when thee are warm days and cool nights make sense. Sort of same reason why people grow strawberries and wine grapes in the locations that they do. These same conditions increase the sugars produced and stored in the fruits.

    This is another pot of the same clone. So not the same clump that is blooming. However, i suspect that the conditions that favor blooming (max or min temperatures) are still going on for me. But these past few years the weather has been wonky. All summer it was 70ish in the day and 50's at night. Same as spring and fall. We had a few days recently that the overnight went down to the high 40s. But back up again. Doesn't quite feel like winter has arrive yet on the mountain......

    the one with my finger is the oldest flowers. None of those are flower stalks. i cant quite compose them in the pot right. It seems like they are putting up multi branched leafy stolons

    Check out the pic of the plant on the guys hand in this thread - very unusual growth habit.

    Do you grow yours as a lowlander? Incredibly beautiful/colorful flowers!
