That's fine. By past experiences, I actually expect them not to make it. This is the first year in a while that I am trying a few again because most don't come back for me. So I find these threads interesting to see what has done well for others.
Name: Bob Kansas...The Land of Ahhhhhs I'm retired Fishing is my job.
Not a big plant but it did come back this year.
I finally got it again after several years of trying to grow it and the two I now have are good plants. Hopefully they'll overwinter. First year plants have not bloomed yet. I'm excited to grow it again.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.
