What is she doing in the center? Getting ready to shoot up flower stalks? A couple others appear to be doing the same thing.

Hi, Linda! I don't have the experience to explain what's happening here, but I know I want one! Lovey dubby Faramir is on my list of must haves. Now I'm anxious to find out what you have there.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort!

Hi Terri, this is my first time to notice that. That one was so pretty last year until the rain and
hot sun hit, I lost most of it.

Hi Linda. It looks like it is just forming another rosette in the center of the parent rosette. It may have been damaged at some time, and that is its way of repairing and growing.
Once in awhile I will find one of mine doing the same thing.

Very pretty.
