Re: Chinese ginger - Yo Kitty!

Volunteers are how I get extra plants to sell.  And sometimes their choice
of placement is better than my own, so they get to stay.  I seem to have
trouble hanging onto a good sized clump of Geranium phaeum - Mourning Widow.
It will grow fine for a few years, throw off some seedlings here and there
and then croak the same year it looks its loveliest.  But so far there's
always been a youngster waiting in the wings to take its place and carry on
for the next few years.
