    Default B. Little Stars (nodosa x cordata)

    One of the favourites in our collection (but then I say that a lot) and the best flowering to date. Pulled a few flowers off to do some pollinating, quite a few left to open. Sorry about the glare but they want to do that. The mount is a 14" long piece of cedar driftwood. Pretty much coated with roots now.

    Chris, would you say this plant prefers being mounted?
    I was looking at my seedling today and it seems to be climbing out of the pot so I thought about mounting it this Spring.
    Maybe a basket?
