Last year, Panman gifted me a couple of No ID Sarrs that hitchhiked in with some moss from MBRS. We were pretty sure one was a flava, and the other was a purpurea.
Now, I don't have a great record with purps, Tennessee may just get a little warm for their liking, so I was worried about that one. However, it was the flava that didn't make it, which surprised me. But I think Pandude will be surprised at the purp, and maybe kick himself a little for letting go it go.

Another week or two and it will be put away for dormancy, which will suck because then I have to wait until spring to see how it progresses.

It looks like you have a northern purp. Your climate is better suited to the southern subspecies. I have the same problem here in eastern North Carolina. One northern purp has adapted to my conditions and is thriving; the other 3 that I had all died by late summer due to heat/disease; my night temps rarely drop below 70°F / 21°C by dawn. No more northern purps for me.

That's a beauty! How much further north than you is MBRS?

I'm tempted to buy some more moss just for the hitchhikers. I've got another batch cooking that looks like it will have some stunners.

Rough estimate appears to be about 100 to 125 miles. It may be OK.

Maybe this is a purp from the mid-Atlantic region (Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania) as opposed to Ontario, Canada. For that matter, it could be an intermediate, as the two subspecies overlap in that area.
