    Like last year at the same period, it's pushing out new leaves :

    I was rather sceptical about my ability to keep this one alive, but here is one of the two I have today :

    Looks great! Give it some sun, to help with hardening off.

    Both of ours died to the ground last year in the spring freezes. Both put out a little growth last year but then one died completely, the other (var. salweenense) still has a shoot, though I don't know if it will survive, really. I think these are probably hardier seed, as both of ours came from N. Vietnam. I tried to get some from Florama but they had sold out, sadly.

    One of my big seedling regrets, I had a tray of laevigatum some years ago, looking great. Then rodents at all of it. Sad...
