Took a new picture of my Pacific Blazing Star which I got from Tabby.

It is pretty beat up. Hope it survives.

Oh Marilyn, it's one weather disaster after another for you this year. Crying I've had mine beat up by hail in the past. They will have little spots (scars) on the leaves, but when the new chicks grow up, they'll be perfect. And it looks like you have a lot on the way! Hurray!

Group hug Virtually all of mine looked like that or worse a few weeks ago when we got hail after hail. But now they've shrugged it of and are making new leaves. The outer leaves are still scared as Chris said, or plain shriveled up and dropped off. but it will recover.

Those actually look pretty good.

It seems like every year mine get pummeled by hail at some point, but they survive.

Thanks to all of you for your encouragement.

Tabby, I do so want to take good care of your offshoots (grand semps Hilarious! )

If all those little offshoots survive, I may need a much bigger container. Then I will be overrun with Chicks, cluck cluck cluck.

As they are in chicken grit they should feel pampered. Big Grin

Hail damage is relatively rare here. But two years ago, if I recall the year correctly, we had a tornado pass overhead of our house (and touched down a few miles away) It dropped 2" hail on my collection. I had a young heuffelii literally blasted to pieces by a hail strike but the root later recovered. Can't tell and can't remember which one now. They do recover.

I think somewhere you showed us a photo of the damage twit. It was impressive that it recovered.

I do remember when that happened with the tornado at twit's house. Seems to me there was a bunch of damaged vehicles and other property that was damaged from the hail. I think you even posted a photo twit. That was some hail storm.

Could have been a real mess if it had been tomatoes. Whistling

I did spell that right! But your collective comments have got me thinking back to the movie "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes". What a stinker of a cult movie. If you haven't seen it, it worth a laugh or three.

The tornado hail did major damage here. Thousands of cars with multiple dents, roofs, and other things. A small neighborhood a few miles away had a lot of homes wiped out. The migrant car repair and roof repair people descended on us like a plague. The flat tire rate soared here just from all the roofing nails the roofers casually scattered in their repair efforts. I missed damage to my car, because I sought shelter with it under a railroad crossing during the storm.
