Mom, why would you think I gave you the worst one?! Rolling on the floor laughing

I gave you the smallest one so it would fit in the packed car!

Well it must have grown since she took it home. Looks to be the same size as the others. Hurray!

Oh yes, Jennifer, I forgot, you were "smallerizing" everything for me so I could take more! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Yes, I planted it as soon as I got back from my trip mid Sept. It has settled in nicely. In fact all the plants I brought home are doing fantastic!

The two that I kept spent the winter in pots sunk into the ground. They are looking really good!

I'm debating when to trim them up. I plan keep them in pots for one more year, but maybe bigger pots. As of yet I do not have a specific spot planned for them since they started out just as an experiment.
