Gotta get one of those ... even if it's zone-pushing just a little. Lovey dubby

I have a few pups of this plant available. They are still small but should be able to leave home in about a month Smiling Here is the plant they came from.

Ooh...Lucky You! I think I can probably pick one up around here, but I'm thinking you'll be hearing from Tee.....lol.
She'd have a harder time locating one in Tennessee.

Can you grow one there, tee?

Annie's lists them as hardy to zone 7b and I'm 7a ... but if the weather stays anything akin to the way it has been this year, I just might give one a try. Another reason for a greenhouse (like I needed another reason). Whistling

I want some like you have in the photos, Sherri. Is that too much to ask?? Hilarious!
