One of my 'Baby Bunting' plants on June 26. I later divided this one into two.

That's lovely. How long have you had it in that space?

Three years, but it was moved from our other place. I'm guessing it's probably about 8-9 years old.

2014 pic of one of my 3 divisions. Strangely, only 2 of the 3 bloomed this year and the one that didn't bloom is adjacent to one that did.

My Baby bunting. I just repotted it as it was too big for it's container. This is before I repotted it.

Thanks. I almost gave it away when I found out it was sterile, but too cute to get rid of. :D

My three divisions in 2015. I potted one, along with other members of the family in anticipation of a redo of my sidewalk (not going to happen this year though).

This one is still in the ground near the sidewalk. It's a bit shaded by the pot that has the others. July 3 picture.

This is the one in the pot which grew well, but late in the season got a bit too much afternoon sun due to the loss of trees to the west. Photo July 3.

This one is in the back yard. Photo also July 3.
