I Rossized my GE this year (as last) and it almost immediately sent up four
pips, which opened and had the typical 'young growth' color (greenish
rather than creamy yellow center).  The new leaves were about 2 1/2" long
when they opened, and they have neither grown since then nor developed
their mature color.  They are very healthy and slug-resistant, though.

Maybe this is because of the drought.  Most of my plants lacked their usual
vigor and some look like dwarf versions of themselves.  No matter how much
you water, you can't replace the many, all-day showers we are supposed to
get around here in the spring and summer.

I bought a small start of Fragrant Bouquet from Bob Axmear, which I planted
just before the tornadoes and their accompanying storms.  That plant has
tripled in size in only one month.
