    …literallly, I could reach out and touch this…ours are drying up and saying so long right now…but this one looks lovely and alive…have to admit not one of my fave of flowers for some reasons but, seeing this …. I could easily be swayed around….lovely, Celeste.

  • Thank you, Katherine! This one has an easy life, as it’s growing in a huge pot in the entry patio at my favorite botanical garden. Everything growing in that patio area gets lots of TLC.
