There is some improvement in the new growth showing, when compared with the previous pic here, so hopefully with a bit of warmer weather, this one will shed it's old skin and spring forth with new growth for you Fred.
Olde CP nuts never die - they just recommit themselves...
The Cono. sp had 11 heads before it went dormant this spring. There were still 11 heads covered in the old skins as they were coming out of summer dormancy, which was a result as far as I was concerned being new to this genus. However, now the skins are splitting I'm finding that there are far more heads than I'd bargained for.
I'm now estimating heads numbering in the high twenties. I must be doing something right.
Here's the plant cleaned up a bit. I removed one head from a triple ( centre) that looked very sad. The one I thought was a triple turned out to be a quad so I'll get round to counting them all sometime.
The C. minutum turned out to be a triple I'm still waiting for C. pillansii to show its body/ies off.

dvg: ...where the Ys are worn notwithstanding, there is a lot to consider - inside out, upside down, turned backwards, at halfmast, waistband rolled in or out, the tilt, and all of the combinations and permutations of these subtleties and others not mentioned

dvg: It's truly saddening to me that we've made headlines due to an inept and unaccountable provincial government, paralyzed by politics...
