Nuccio's Pearl Flower Buds...
... found on the ground under the plant. This is a small plant (1 foot), planted September 2004 and "loaded" with buds until yesterday. Leaves look a healthy green, with no visible sign of damage. 2 of the flower buds were half eaten.
Any ideas on what could have happened?
(I am so disappointed...was really looking forward to the blooms.)
