Your X. aureum looks very happy Alana. Is that Petasites it's growing with?

Thank you! Yes, it is growing with Petasites. Out of the photo on the right is Lemon Spritzer Cape Fuchsia. It is small in proportion right now but my garden dream is that it will contribute to the interplay of light and dark in the near future. Smiling

How long has it been leafed out? It should start to really take off now that it's hotter. I moved my variegated Petasites to a place where it could happily run rampant a few months ago. I'm still pulling up small plants 2-3 feet away from the old location.

When I got it in May it had been leafed out but the leaves were brown and damaged. It is covered with fresh foliage now and is growing quickly so I am looking forward to robust specimen soon.
