WANTED: Sabrina, Jools, and Pixydish

Hello Sabrina, Jool's, and Pixydish.

The real name of the variegated plant that I labelled soapwort, is FIGWORT. I knew it had wort in it, because I always seem to like plants with the word wort at the end!

LOL! I was just laughing about that when I saw your post. I do that kind of thing all the time so I'm glad I'm not alone. Not to worry, I know that plant and it's a stunner. The clump I have is small and I was wanting to get more to make a bit more of an impact, so yours is perfect. Thanks!

The bees love it. It's supposed to be a bog plant, but I grow mine in the sun and it dries out and it doesn't skip a beat. It grow tall, so you'll want to stake it. The tiny blossoms aren't remarkable, but they last for a couple of months and are covered with bees.

Thanks Kellie, I will get a tag back on it. I bet I don't forget again!

Jitterbug, I have mine in full sun, and it does great, too. My neighbor with bees has already requested one.
