    Default Achmea Fasciata

    I almost dumped this baby a couple of months ago. I was so frustrated with it. I have had it for 4 yrs and it never did anything, so last year I transplanted it and still nothing. Transplanted it twice this year(just because)and still nothing. I finally told my OH that he could take it to his Master Gardener sale. Well that scared the flower right out of it. Needless to say he didn't get my pretty for his sale. What's that you say....Never give up. I hear ya!
    So here it is, just wanted to share!

    Gin, you gave me one of these, didn't you? I have a plant that is gray and dusty looking just like the beautiful one in Ischel's image. WOW. If it blooms like that -- hehe...

    Lovely bloom, Ischel!

    Cheers,
