This was planted from a small 4-cell pack from Kline’s in 2006. No flowers but the ferny leaf mound grew very well. In 2007, flowers appeared in late spring and were just lovely. There are three in Gnome (one left and two right) In August 2007, one of those in Gnome was moved to the back right of the front steps in Welcome.
