@Terrimclaughlin we had high 90s,but we had alot of rains to..the humidity was really high. But on a average I would water atleast every 4th day if we had no rain and the potted plants dirt felt dry because had it in a pot til I did the flowerbed.

I do to Kim @kimguy I want to divide it and put one in my front garden to grow. I'd love to have the other colors I've seen to. I think a flower bed with those and lilies would be So Pretty 😍

When u trim those stems after the bloom have died how far down do yo trim that stem. I've gotten my first on and it says to trim back after flowering but how far back!!! Help me out Acetaker??!!🤣😂😊💕

Terri, To #rejuvenateguara #rejuvenatebelleza If your stem shows no signs of blooms you can cut the stem back to where u see it start at the top leaves. This helps liven it back up and stops it from spending energy forming seeds and to gives way for new blooms. Seeding can come later in the season. I'm thinking about leaving one stem with no blooms to see if it forms seeds. The rest will be trimmed to give new flowers. @terrimclaughlin

@janelleabella j can do that but make sure they stay cool til u want to plant them. U don't want alot of temp changes it will mess up the bulbs.

What was wrong with poor Heidi?? My gosh, you've had your hands full! Don't even think about apologizing to me. Just glad puppy is ok & you are ok. The swamp will drain soon enough & then you'll have more work on your hands! Take your time. Be well, & give Heidi a squeeze for me. 🐾🐕🌺
