I have to give it up here to the subject of this photo. She's quite a looker, pun intended.

This is a great photo! I love globularias, but I've had trouble keeping them alive. The latest I tried was G. incanescens, which disappeared in winter and never came back this spring. I suspect my uncommonly warm winter last year wasn't cold enough for it.

We lost one of three and it was nearest of the three to a bubbler so I'm thinking they don't like wet feat during summer. Just a guess at this point. If I can find it for sale I would by it annually I like it so much.

Gorgeous buds in the close ups too Leslieray Smiling
I'd sure love to see one as well.
Unfortunately, we'd have too much cold for it.
