Here are just a few shockers from this big growing season.

14" Endless Summer flower head atop a .5" thick stem with 12" leaves and 3 other new stems coming from it (never seen anything like it)

Wowser - congratulations!

RE: 2013 Bionic Blooms

Wow! How long have these been in the ground?

RE: 2013 Bionic Blooms

LOL, thanks. One dose of Miracle grow 10-10-10 pellets is all I "gave" them.

PM - one year, from a 2-gallon pot...

ES - 4 years, from one gallon pots...

Peppermint - 2 years, but I moved it to that location just this spring!

All those shown are on new stems produced from the crowns this year.
