    This came in a trade a short time ago and I put it in its pot in the greenhouse instead of the ground outside, figuring it had already had enough winter to vernalize properly [all my other cyps are in pots in the ground]. It started to grow almost immediately and I saw the large bud on Saturday and thought it might bloom in a week or so. It opened this morning to my surprise. The flower is a little small, only 2", but it is a small plant and I didn't think this seedling was blooming size anyway, so I think the flower size will improve as the plant gets older.
