I'm looking for a source from which to buy R. mucronatum var mucronatum 'Winter Sunset', also R. X 'Olive'. Does anyone know of a source selling either of them? Thank you.

My 'Olive' is blooming now. I pruned it for an 'open' look, because of it's location.
Wish I had some extras for you Hallerlake. :-)

June is a good time to take cuttings of early bloomers. Maybe get some starts then.
