I picked up two seedling plants from the Peckerwood Garden sale table. They are apparently from the clan named 'La Buffa Rosa' by Yucca Do, but not further identified as to variety. One of them bloomed (indeed, after a nice big rainstorm) in June of the following year, but they stayed small until they became even better established a year later. Now that they are, they make quite a splash when they suddenly bloom, periodically from late spring through fall.
