growing throughout the year

H. fasciculare is grwoing throughout the year except in freezing periods. I find it regularily from April or sometimes even March and it stays to December/Januar depending on the temperatures.
Those pure yellowgreen specimens, which are usually staying quite small are called f. viridis or var. viridis in Europe, but that taxon is not accepted by all.
