Great banner Cal!

Thanks everyone for the thumbs & nice comments. Smiling

I highly recommend this plant....no pests, drought tolerant, no fertilizer,
just native soil, e.g. decomposed granite. Great bee magnet.

It's a California native, but can probably grow elsewhere, even in the UK according
to this article..... https://www.laspilitas.com/nat...

Ours were started from 7 rhizomes 13 yrs ago, and they have spread ~50 ft
in all directions. Easy to pull out if you want to keep them contained.

They didn't bloom the first few years, but put on a great
show now.

Cal that is such a nice, refreshing banner. When I looked at first I thought "white roses". Even the buds almost appeared to be rose buds. Then I went through your post and realized what these beauties are. Thanks also for the video and a great banner! Thumbs up

Wish I would've seen this as a banner. Travel yesterday had me away from normal comforts and just failed to log in.
Of course the standard Thumbs up Thumbs up will always apply for a great banner, Cal!
