I have had spuria bloom stalks develop a side growth 3 or 4 inches above the ground. One I cut off and planted. The other I ignored. This was several years ago and I really don't know what happened. But today when I was taking the photos of my seedlings I noticed this odd growth.
This one is on a stalk about 7 or 8 inches above the ground and has at least 6 full sized spuria plants (at least 3 feet tall and several leaves on each) but growing outward from the central point. I am not sure the best thing to do. I think I will leave it for now to see what it does. I am curious to see if any of it will bloom, etc. But later, should I leave it alone, cut it off the stalk and plant the whole thing (remember, the only rhizome is at
the base of the stalk), or ??
Suggestions, thoughts, etc. welcome.
