I got my BulletProof from Bob Solberg last Sep 2011. Looks like another beauty.

Plantbug,

That one looks kind of green/blue. Has it lost some wax? Is it in some sun or is that the normal color?

Steve,

I noticed mine has more green color than yours. I also checked on Bob's web site:

"its incredible substance or its rich deep blue color that lasts well into summer."

I picked this up at his nursery. I would probably say the heat because we have had no rain and it gets very little sun in the early morning.

Here is a link that might be useful: Bulletproof

Mine is also looking a tad more green than blue now. Will be moving it this fall to a much shadier spot.

Yeah, it's probably the heat. I see it's a tetraploid sport of Halcyon. Should be pretty blue.

BTW, It's Paul that picked up one of these. I don't own one. I wonder if his is still waxy blue. How cool that you live close enough to Bob to visit his nursery.

DW won Bulletproof as door prize recently - still blue in MN.
