I've no reason to believe it is not what it came labelled as, the seed was purchased from a reputable seed house. I will put it in a bigger pot and see what it does. Right now it is in a 14" pot. It's a tough as nails plant for me. It must thrive on neglect as that is what it gets for the most part. It even got kicked about by a disgruntled pre-teen this past summer and bounced right back. I would love for it to bloom again and hopefully get seed from it. Linda Foulis Red Deer, AB Yay, we get a Chinook today, it's already +2C!
