It sure is! It's one of the success stories from my bog trays. The
individual flowers are about the size of a quarter dollar; so far, my
plants have produced up to seven flowers per stem, although I've read that
they can do much better. They get better/bigger yearly.

been relieved of my responsibilities as Holder of the National Flu Virus
Collection; at least three seemingly separate iterations have kept me down
for about a month.
