ZAP! - 'Electrocution'

Postby Minnow » May 02, 2008 7:36 am

This is a photo taken 2 years ago of "Electrocution" at Plant Delights spring open house. It is new to me this year, so I chose this photo over my new one. Did anyone else order this one this year? I just love it! It is going into a container that stands 4 feet high.

I love that one because I especially love the pointy leaved varieties. It would look awesome in a pot.

No, but from the pic it will be beautiful in a tall slender pot :D

I found this one this year - 2014 and bought one. I'm hoping that it gets stronger as it gets bigger, because it's been slug bait for me this year. It's in a trough and I still find as many as 3 slugs on it at one time. Have been keeping a close watch of late.
