Hi, I have purchased Swans in FLight 2 times. I lost it last winter and I see no sign of the replacement this Spring. I have a couple other Siberians and was surprised that it isn't showing to be hardier. Voted to be a Dykes winner, I still would not recommend it.
I was wondering if anyone else has lost it? Angry

I have not ordered that one but I find that Siberians take a long time to produce clumps unless they are Ceasar's Brother (lol). Most that I have planted come up as one little sprig the first year. Sometimes it takes a while. I got Joyce Cole last year from a hybridizer and it is only one shoot this year, not much of an increase. Same goes for Alley Oops which is a species I think. Just one sprig!

Mine are taking awhile too. I was tempted to buy more from Breezeway since he has so many at great prices this year.

My old, established clumps of sibs are up, but the new(er) ones are not - they always take a while longer here. So maybe there is still hope for yours? Crossing Fingers!
You don't know if it will grow until you try!

I sure hope so. I will keep an eye out for me. Today it is warming up so I hoping warmer weather will soon be here to stay. Tomorrow we drop back down but not as low as last week.
