They bloom better rootbound - and this one sure is!

Looks healthy Stan being root bound I can just about see the flowers of where it gets its name from.

Thanks Penny.Its an old favorite of mine. I think I've had a few since the 80's or so. Usually the cultivar Black gold. This one is not so black.

I just could not get my camera to focus on it to get a clear photo. I tried closer,farther,zoom. It just wanted to focus on the background. I even had the camera lines in a square on the flower...still bad.

The Black Gold sounds nice to Stan.

Yes my phone camera can be the same so I jave to go into my settings to alter it some times.

It looks great! I have one outside, also.

My mother has had one in her front porch for more than 20 years there in Hayward. It gets little attention.
