Re: gas plant

I viewed it ok. Looks like mine.

The interesting thing about mine is it was a salvage job. About 5 years ago our MGs totally dug up the existing cottage garden and replanted. Though they retained a lot of plants, they also needed a lot of new ones and one thing they wanted was gas plants. I ordered them from Surry in Maine.

Our order was one of the largest Sue had that year; she carefully (as always) packaged it and sent it off, but it sort of disappeared, so she kindly replaced the entire order. She found out and relayed what happened. The package made it from Maine to Indianapolis where the UPS hub sent it to the Maine Dept of Agriculture - they mistook the inspection sticker for the address label. MDOA sent it back to Indiana and the UPS idiot sent it back to MDOA. MDOA obliterated the inspection sticker and sent it off to Indy again, so that after about 2 weeks it finally arrived. On the replacement box, she skipped the sticker. She said if the original order ever made it here, to just keep anything that might still be alive. I salvaged several plants, perhaps 10% of the order from the rotten, moldy mess. About half of those survived. I kept one of the gas plants.

It lived but did not thrive where I planted it so after a couple of years I moved it (digging deeply). It loved it's new spot and bloomed the next year. Now it seems to have sort of heaved; it's roots are above the soil and there's only one stalk this year. I think I'll build up the soil a bit to cover it and give it a decent mulch.

Oh, it's huge now -- probably four feet high.  Just
finished blooming.
Well than, yours is bigger than mine :)

It tells me 'The File You Are Looking For Is

no clue, it was restricted to folks under 18 when I
checked... but I did change that.
