I thought I'd be safe taking pieces from her garden because they all looked healthy and like they had been there for a long time.

I am boycotting big box stores for plants of any kind. It seems that all they offer are mislabeled and diseased plants these days. Plus I keep seeing warnigns that all their plants have been treated with neonatal insecticides. Thumbs down

I think that's true for some.....I know that some large local nurseries in my area sell to the box stores & they don't use harmful insecticides...I remember reading an article last year in the local paper.

I hope you will share photos if they bloom next spring! Some of mine wait two seasons after planting before blooming. I even had a tall bearded that I can't remember dividing or anything and it didn't bloom this year.

I just ordered 19 different kinds of aquatic plants for my aquarium. I won't bore you with the names, since no one will probably know what I'm talking about anyway. lol The tank had started leaking in the middle of the night back in April and my husband had to re silicone it. In the meantime I had to put all the plants in a little 10 gallon. They were crammed and a lot of them didn't survive. What did is pretty pitiful looking. I planted them all but the tank looks lousy. I figure it is a good time to try some new stuff. Smiling
