I'm not really a gardener but I got a bit caught up in it around 1998-2001. I became the collector and planter of all things odd. The property was a cow pasture from 1939 until...who knows. The point? black, rich dirt. Dig a hole it will grow. Anyway, for you non-gardeners, this little jewel blooms in winter. It's blooming in at least 5 different configurations in my yard right now. Amazing.
