    Default Blooming BRS Shooting Star "Black Gold"




    Picked this beauty up for $5.00. Marked down because some little birds had eaten the blooms off of it. It spiked again right after I got it. About 2 months ago. Now blooming. Not bad for 5 bucks huh?

    Hey, me too! I got one of these for $5.99 at a local grocery store, mislabeled with a Degarmoara Winter Wonderland tag. It now has two lead growths and this year it has already produced and finished with one bloom spike, with another about a foot long, and another about four inches long. It can almost be classified as invasive.
