"Does anyone grow D amethystinum?  All the seed I've received as that
species has turned out to be (mostly) D meadia."




I have grown D. amethystinum from my own collections in W. Illinois in 2003.
A couple of months ago I potted up 32 2-year old seedlings and they are
still green.  You are welcome to a few when they go down, which shouldn't be
long.  It is beautiful - see


I don't show a portrait of the plant but it is much shorter than D. meadia.
