|Shining star of the back yard|
She loved her location this summer after spending the winter in the house as a slip, then a small plant, then a very gangly plant.
|Not all of these slips will make it, but we are hoping|
for a dozen or more.
Now with frost on its way for certain, this garden star must be saved and perhaps even multiplied for next summer.
Plants were dug, pruned back and potted. They will winter over in the garage. The mountain of prunings went into a long, flat tub with damp, loose composty earth.
Next summer she will again shine across the whole garden stage, clumped in vivid chartreuse and shocking red-orange.
