Re: The year in one post...
The O. phaeacantha & kleiniae were ones that I received from you years ago. I particularly like the O. phaeacantha as the flowers age from yellow to deep orange. It was quite the display. I don't know if I am just a tad bit too cold for the kleiniae up here. It did better in a pot (stored indoors over winter for 3 years) than in the garden. The one I had at my previous house (sited against the house) in almost pure sand died a slow death by more growth dying each vs. what grew. This specimen appears to be headed for the same fate. I doubt its the result of the soil mixture as this bed is 1/3 sand, gravel and topsoil. :-(
