I'm one zone up from you and mine is blooming now. This mini has filled out nicely in its second year and I like the fact that the scapes are well proportioned for the size of the plant.
Another new mini that I planted late last summer is Little Devil. It heaved over winter but recovered nicely.
Is my memory fading, or does Hideout and Masquerade look a lot alike? Or!!! Did I purchase a mislabeled plant (which, in this case is quite possible! :( )
irawon, thanks for the look at my future with this little cutie!
