h. Nancy

I noticed that several people like h. Nancy on the yellow poll. I looked at the HL pics and wouldn't buy it from that (I wouldn't buy my favorite So Sweet from those pics, either).

Do you have a picture that shows Nancy in a way that we see why you chose it as a favorite?

Bkay I just took this picture of my Nancy today. It's in a dry spot in my garden. It's contended with tree root competition and drought this year. I didn't take a picture earlier this season but I do have a pic from last year, so you can see it when it was more yellow.

Nancy wasn't the subject of this shot. It was Tick Tock. But you can see that it's more yellow on July 3, 2011. It's one of my favorite yellows and it's planted in mostly shade.

I think Coll123 has a good picture of hers planted in a pot.

Lovely Nancy, Paul. That's a nice increase in size for two months. Is that a bergenia to the left of Nancy?

Yes, aka Pigsqueak, have a couple growing in shade, but definitely grows much better in the sun.

Paul, we call them Elephant Ears up here. Any idea why mine don't bloom consistently? I have some in sun and others in shade. The sun/shade quotient does't seem to be a factor and I know enough to not cut back the leaves in the fall.
