Neomarica questions

Sat, 26 May 2007 14:06:01 PDT
Hello - The discussion about Neomarica plants prompts me to ask a 
couple of questions.  I have had Neomarica gracilis, the so-called 
Apostle plant bloom and also N. longifolia, which had charming small 
yellow flowers which last only a day, but has flowers continuing to 
appear for a few weeks.  The longifolia, like gracilis has started to 
produce small plantlets.  I also have two plants of the newer 
cultivar "Regina" which I have been told will have leaves up to five 
feet long and much larger flowers.  Has anyone had Regina mature and 
bloom for them?If so, what was the height of the plant and were the 
flowers larger than either gracilis or longifolia?

	Since I  live in a rental property I am growing these plants in 14" 
clay pots now and realize that may well affect their ultimate height. 
The leaves are about 30" long now.  Any information you could provide 
to me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
