DH keeps checking for our plant of ruthenica, but no bloom as yet. It is really tiny. Great article.

It is in the siberian bed, but otherwise we don't do anything special. DH just said it is showing a clump instead of one or 2 fans. We have had it for several years. However is should be well marked as it is a little plant.
