Been a good grower for me, one of my favorite. Got it from Chris in 11.

Here it is when I first planted it in 11. In the bottom left corner.

And next year. Bottom left again.

Excited to see how it looks this year. Seems to be a good grower.

That's some amazing growth after one year! I think I need some of your dirt.... or do you fertilize regularly?

Pia said it, Chris sends some awesome plants. I did add a lot of compost, a yard or two, to this bed when I made it. So much it burned the first plants I had in it i'm embarrassed to say. I use a slow release fertilizer twice in the year and some miracle grow when I'm bored, maybe once a month. I also add and leave the leaves that fall and let them compost in.

A mature Lakeside Cha Cha found in a private garden I visited. Leaves are wet due to rain.
