Title: Re: GE (Great Expectations)-
Great Expectation fans.
I was about ready to give up on
mine, acquired in 1995, but always try moving it to a new location
first! Here are my notes on GE: 5 leaves in '96, 5 leaves
in '97, 6 leaves in '98!!
moved to east side of cottonwood
bed 5/16/99 (needs more sun?)...doing better...10 leaves by
fall. 2000 - 3 div. , # leaves ?
This spring it has 6 divisions;
the leaves are still unfurling but it's already about 2 ft. across,
and looking very impressive. I wonder if the answer isn't more
with light and water than soil. It had much better soil in its
previous location, dry shade where I didn't always water often

Regarding width of blue/green on
the edges of the leaves...that seems to vary a lot from leaf to
leaf. On one leaf the gold will come almost to the edge on one
side with more blue on the other...every leaf is
I bought a second plant when I
thought the first one wasn't going to turn out, the same time as I
moved #1. I'm going to have to move #2 as it's getting too big
where I have it!
....as soon as I can decide on a
good new location. I have lots of shade but not very much
with morning sun, afternoon shade!
