      Any way I could get a cutting or two of this one? We are shorter season here, but would make a great living room corner houseplant! til summer then it could go outside here...

      Yeah, I know about the late blooming and all. I'm fortunate that I live in a climate that's warm enough long enough to allow for blooms, but also cool enough to grow the plants. I see these giants all over the place, usually the single lilac-colored plants.

      I do some rose hybridizing and have been advised that rose pollen can be stored up to three years if it's kept dry and in the freezer. I can try that with the imperialis pollen, then use it on my earlier blooming Dahlias next year.
