Howdy again All,

I forgot to mention that mine too is white (as in the wiki picture) and is
more or less summer dormant/winter growing although after flowering in
November 2001 it actually waited until February of this year (i.e about 14
months since it set its seed) when it finally shot, so it is slightly out
of whack as it came up in the middle of summer.  It has now divided into
two and is growing fine, despite skipping an entire growing season.  I do
not know if this is normal, caused by our drought, or a product of
flowering in a pot?

I was very pleased to see it return as it was very striking with its height
and flowers when out.
