Very interesting flower!

Bev - I've had a plant in my garden for about 20 years or so and it flowered this year. It's just dying off now. Mine is a pineapple lily.

It's so exotic, Bev! Looks like a geranium by the leaves, but the blossom looks so orchid-like!

1.SST to UP27
2.aur(57)ab39:(7)h3=(5-3)f3=b3-(3=178)c127-(7)ab3=h3 > +7h3, UP52
3.(SS)2:g9=h8-e8=e2 > -2g2, UP81

Begonia?

So, Bev, what the heck is it??

can be done w/o uniqueness:

2.(7)d1=e2-(7=1)c2-(18)c17=(237)cdf1 > -7bi1, SS(2), UP81

SE=7.2

IMO:SE=7.2 or less should be on Hard page not Tough.

1: Single house techniques to UP 27

2: Kraken cell (237)d1 => f3<>3:
(3)d1-(3=5)f3
||
(2)d1-(2=3)f1
||
(7)d1-(7=8)i1-(8=4)g3-(4=6)g6-(6)f6=(123)f169
S o f3=5. UP 52. Note pair (12) in d5,f6.

3: Coloring of 2s: e2=e8-h8=g9 =>g2<>2. UP 81.

points (will not lose site popularity if Tough page really tough).

a)guessers have no problem solving no matter what the difficulty level.
b)FC-net users are in much the same situation as guessers, unless they optimize (as Alfred tries to do)
c)Eureka solvers will have a daily challenge.

Re: Sotir's question from yesterday.

My preference would be that the puzzles on the Hard page should remain solvable with single house techniques. I feel quite strongly about this, because those puzzles I can do during a coffee break and without resorting to the possibility grid. A nice More...

It is silly to write my step 2 in Krakenese.
(23)df1=(7)d1-(7=8)i1-(8=4)g3-(4=6)g6-(6)f6=(123)f169 => f3<>3 is more like it.

point taken Jyrki - maybe upping frequency of SE=7.3+ on tough page would accommodate.

Bev, your plant is Swedish Ivy (Plectranthus Australis). Grows everywhere in my garden and I am always pulling it out when it starts to overtake. It does originate from Australia.

1. Note hi7=56;i18=78.Unique possibilities to 27.
2. If i1=7=e2,f3=5,b3=3;37 have no place in column c.So i1=8.UP37.
3. Whether g9=1,d1=7(to avoid the 23 unresolvable rectangle at df19);OR g9=2,g2=1,c2=7;again d1=7.UP81.

I do not agree with Anne that this flower is a pineapple lily. The plant in the photo seems to be a member of the family Labiatae, which is in the dicotyledonus branch of flowering plants. Thus, it has highly zygomorphic flowers (is bilaterally symmetrical). The flower of the pineapple lily (of More...

There is a one step UR solution:
2. If e2=7,c2=1=h1,c7=8=i1=g8,g9=1;df19=23.So d1=7.UP81.

Rayray, Anne did not say the flower in the picture is the pineapple lily. She said she had a pineapple lily that had flowered for the first time in 20 years. I have identified the plant in the picture.

June..it certainly looks like a plectranthus, but plectranthus australis is not an australian native. Australis just means 'southern'. That species hails from Moorea according to one of the searches I did. I also have this one in my own garden..took over shrubs 3ft high, so I pulled every scrap out More...

I agree with Jyrki that puzzles requiring something more than basic techniques should not be demoted to the Hard page. But it is true that we have two tiers of puzzles on this Tough page, and although I am grateful for all the 7.1 and 7.2 puzzles, I can appreciate the frustration those of you who More...

Thanks, June, for setting Rayray on the right track.

Re the notes on SE ratings of 7.1 to 7.4 or 7.5 (called '7.small' below). As the SE rating is based on the most difficult SE step, some 7.small ratings only need one, fairly simple elimination. However, some on this page over the past six months or so, have been rated in that area, but have needed More...

Sorry Anne and June. You are quite right. I misunderstood what Anne was saying. By mistaken inference I thought she was tentatively proposing an identification. Also June; thanks for identifying the plant. Beautiful thing to have as a weed !

Thanks to everyone for the spirited debate, in proper binomial nomenclature, about my plant. I had absolutely no clue what it was. It started as a cutting from the plant of a colleague of mine, pre-retirement and I've always liked the slightly succulent leaves and really liked the flowers. It has to be hardy to survive my class of care and I do hope it blooms again.
