Hibiscus Southern Belle had for over 10 years. Last summer was a great year for them, due to the rain. This one measured almost 10".

Blossom I wish I could make more Hermies. My ceramics shop closed last year. This Creeping Perennial over winters in Hermie every year :D I empty him out and split it up to spread here and there and then plant him up fresh :D Gosh....that Southern Belle is absolutely breath taking! :D

Ginseng, love that Hosta bed sign/arrangement!

Blossom, I am awestruck over your humongous hibiscus...also, how long has your Heurchera been in the ground, please (I suffer from envy.)

So...my turn? pink hollyhocks ...seeds were a gift and no name. The "Rooster tail" is Hen and Chicks of course...and I wonder if it will appear like this again, this year...has been left outdoors all 'winter.'

I did a pic of a mini collection of Hostas, but it shows 5 Hostas and one big black SQUARE so I will hide my shame.

Blossom I wish I could make more Hermies.

Why don't you try your hand at grotes, I was going to try last year then hurt my ankle, so I am hoping to make some this year.
