It's not called Musical Note Plant for nothing! First buds of the season.

They are neat to look at. I'll have some primary rooted cuttings available in a few weeks if all goes well. It's kin to the Rotheca myracoides, Blue Butterfly Plant.

All Rotheca's are zone 8 hardy .. i know the R. myracoides is a solid zone 8 hardy but I've never left the R incisa in the ground over winter - I always keep them in the greenhouse and both go dormant.

Well there are more amazing plants to come - but my garden is literally a month behind .. really crazy weather and the ground temperature was 5 weeks late getting up to growing speed. Hopefully the Dancing Ladies will be making an appearance soon!
