Yeah...I bought the seeds after seeing the red throat in pictures on Llifle.

Got the seeds from Gymnos: VoS 14-1544

Maybe the red will come through when they're a little older...

Edit: added a photo from yesterday, no sign of red. Hopefully the sun will be back tomorrow and i can have another look.

I knocked these puplets off a clump today. All ready to go with roots. Could be a few months before they flower though.

I never followed up my promise to have another look. This final photo was the last day it opened... I might be stretching it a little but think the throat looks a little red/pink.
