This is one of those semps that seems to have year round interest with it's color changes.

Do you know how many inches it is across the rosette? I love it's leave form. : )

Just guessing, I'd say about 4" across. It's not a huge one. I will have enough to share with you next year - just be sure to remind me! I should've cleaned the fallen leaves away better. Kind of a lot of clutter in the picture. *Blush*

I think it's a beautiful photos, typical of what a person would see this time of year in the semp bed.

I thought it looked like it would be similar in size to Commander Hay. : )

Looking forward to next spring. I really need to get busy and get two more beds prepped, my current beds are getting over crowded.

Mine are so crowded too, but I'm just not sure I have a decent place to make another one. Sad I'm sure I'll figure out something.

My new 24' long bed is already showing signs of becoming crowed. Come spring time it will definitely be a problem.
Here is is in June. I can't believe how much things have grown since then.
