A two year old seedling

Growing well, but is it special enough to keep around?

Have the wavy edges been getting more pronounced than previous years? If so, maybe it will get more rippled in time. That takes quite a while to develop sometimes. If it isn't in the way, give it a little more time. :)

We have some seedling culls from Ron Livingston that he gave away several years ago and one has become massive with really long wavy leaves, and even after 6/7 years I still can't decide what to do with it. My criteria for introducing/keeping things is often whether or not someones asks me what it is. That seedling and several of our own are at the edge of the wetlands and nobody has asked about it yet, so still haven't done anything with it. Others that I thought nothing of have been pointed out by customers before, so sometimes it is hard to judge what is worth keeping or not...

Give it some time, and when it is time to stay or go you will know for sure :)

The edges are more rippled this year than last, so yes, I'd say they're getting more pronounced. Thanks, Chris! I guess I'll keep it and see what it does. :)
