I have to give it up here to the subject of this photo. She's quite a looker, pun intended.

This is a great photo! I love globularias, but I've had trouble keeping them alive. The latest I tried was G. incanescens, which disappeared in winter and never came back this spring. I suspect my uncommonly warm winter last year wasn't cold enough for it.

Old gardeners never die. They are just pruned and repotted.

We lost one of three and it was nearest of the three to a bubbler so I'm thinking they don't like wet feat during summer. Just a guess at this point. If I can find it for sale I would by it annually I like it so much.

I'd sure love to see one as well.
Unfortunately, we'd have too much cold for it.
