Re: A couple of doozies

Ceres, how in the world do you grow it in a container. Mine get HUGE! I
bought one after seeing a design by Gertrude Jekyll that included Cardoon,
and several other silver and white plants. Stunning!

Rich, mine usually gets puny in the summer heat, but sends up a flowers
spike anyway.  The plant does have a tropical look, but also resembles a
giant thistle (one of its common names) the bloom is hot pink and fuzzy.
Mine has never actually died back all the way to the ground but in colder
climes it may. It will set seeds as well.

The Love in a Puff is a shade plant here. Just FYI. I have some seeds from
one but haven't tried them yet.
