    That's not even the whitest leucophylla I have. Just wait until you see the actual variant alba. And yes, that's a 'White Knight'. The funny thing is that alata var. nigropurpurea I have is so much taller than any flava in my collection. It's a beast!

    Naturalizing and propagating VFTs on private acreage in FL- pointers pls

    Oh wow, I had no idea you had that much land to work with! That sounds fine if you contain them to that one spot, which they'll probably do by themselves. Very heavy seeds for their size.
