Wonderful banner, Sean. I used to have them but they struggled in our hot Phoenix heat. Our 122F did them in after having had them for about 4 years.

Cute as buttons and it's visible that the glaring sun isn't affecting their crispiness. Nice to see your photos on the banner wagon, Whitebeard. 🎅🏻 🎅🏻 🎅🏻 🎅🏻 🎅🏻

Really nice banner Sean!

Thank you very much for the kind words and thumbs, and special thanks go out to Bonehead, Fleur569, Marilyn, and pardalinum for the Acorn s. Frankly, after some spectacular banners of late, I was rather trepidatious about it, thinking you'd all find it a snoozer. I was most glad for your effluent warmness. I tip my hat to you. (Oh, and in my tradition, this Sunday we light the pink candle of joy so it is rather apropos of the season!)

Very nice display Sean. Thumbs up
One of the joys of the hot sunny slope.

I didn't know you could grow it in NY due to the cold.
Do you have to replant each spring or over winter it indoors?

Cal, it's been great here. No replanting necessary. It has weathered the winters, and continues to spread a bit. It's one of my happy plants, and the deer leave it alone! Bonus.

That's amazing! I thought it would freeze for sure, as it's full of water......must have some
kind of antifreeze in it. Smiling

We call it "ice plant" here (for similar plants).......that's a good fit. Green Grin!
