    Robert Halgrim.JPG Here is my Robert Halgrim that I got from Marie Nock late last fall. It was brought inside when it got real cold. I left it outside on the cooler marginal days to harden it off. It seems ready to get planted, photo taken 5 minute ago!

    Happy Easter to everyone! :)

    Hi Ron,
    For me it's a slow one. You seem to be doing really well with it. Remember when you plant it out, it's a shade lover.

    Marie - it is very slow. Went through a growing season and grew some but not much. At it's current rate I figure 5 years at least before I can get an airlayer.

    I've had this one a few years & it hasn't grown much. It seems to lose as many leaves as it gains.

    I do not think so,it looks a little different to me??It is hard to tell as the plant is small.If it is superslow it probably is Halgrim.Mine has not put out a new leaf in over 1 year

    Mike, Not a new leaf in over a year? That's not good. It's a slow grower, but should be flushing out a few leaves every once in awhile. Especially now with all the heat and rain.

    I don't think Ricky's plant is a Halgrim.

    Here's one in a pot - not setting any speed records but it has a nice flush of at least 5 new leaves

    The small ones can be forgotten. This baby should be a Halgrim seven months in the ground,three branches four new leaves.

    Robert Halgrim.JPG Here is a shot of my Robert Halgrim. Its the same plant as the one in the first post. It had a decent sized branch that was very green. I kept waiting for it to color up but it never did. Such a slow cultivar, I was reluctant to cut off the branch. It was a dud and had to go :(

    Robert Halgrim 1.JPG Still fairly shaded (which I think it prefers although a green and yellow), the removal of some filtered sun blocking plant material has helped. The removal of the green sport also let more filtered sun get to it. Noticed new leaves budding as well. :)
