Spring 2006 Update:
Our plants have bloomed and we have verified that the plant we grow is correctly Scleranthus uniflorus. We have also learned that the name we originally obtained the seed under, S. biflorus ssp uniflorus, is a synonym for S. uniflorus.
Scleranthus uniflorus 'Emerald'
Scleranthus uniflorus 'Olive'
