Got camera happy today and took some photos. Hope you enjoy. I've noted the pot sizes and the ones I overpotted. Bad, bad Linda. :-)

Sora Purple Clouds. 3" pot. Sat on chair so you could see how big.

RE: Some of My AVs

Thanks for posting these beautiful photos of beautiful plants. A picture is worth a thousand words. I learned a lot just reading your text and looking at the photos. You are right that Shirl's Cranberry Smoothie is a spectacular plant.

RE: Some of My AVs

Thank you, Jerome. Sometimes it's easier to learn if you can actually see what a person's talking about. The AVs (and streps) I overpotted because I ran out of smaller pots. Oh, and the leaf pot in the Shirl's Cranberry Smoothie photo is a small Solo cup about 2" across.

BTW, you asked about big standards? Apache and Wrangler's get HUGE! I had an Apache Rainmaker that was nearly 36" across in a 4" pot. I had to use a leaf support.

Correction: Baby Brian is in a 3" pot; wasn't looking at the photo carefully.
