Lucky you--looks like a really good plant and from a farmer's market, too. I wish we had ornamental garden plants sold at the farmer's markets here, but I think it's only veggies. When the farmer's markets start selling--probably in a week or two--I am going to take a look and find out for sure what they have, if it's only veggies or other plants, too.

Posted this on "Talking Agastaches", but since I mentioned Grapefruit Nectar, I wanted to post it here.

Went to Meijer tonight and noticed they had pots of Grape Nectar, Raspberry Nectar and Grapefruit Nectar.

They had them in eight inch tall yellow pots at $9.99.

They also had all three in an oval gray pot for $14.99.

I scooped up 3 or 4 of Raspberry Nectar, one of Grape Nectar and one of Grapefruit Nectar (in the eight inch pots)! Would have loved to get more than one Grapefruit, but I had to stop.

I didn't think I could separate the three colors in the oval pot, so I got the individual pots.

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Thumbs up

The yellow pots look like they are in one-gallon size pots. Smiling
