@DeborahBanks thank you Deborah 😁 don’t think you’ve done anything. The leaves are like thick floppy blades of grass 😂 they look so scruffy 😝 then the flower stalks will emerge but they have like a little claw-looking bit on the top and are a lot stronger than the floppy leaves

Do the flowers last long?

2w
comment
kez001uk

@alan1111 at least a couple of weeks but probably more if it was drier and less windy. I put them back outside as they got too tall for the greenhouse bench so they’ve been exposed to endless rain 😐

I love that flower color, but I’m honestly more interested in the fact that it’s pistols (and I assume by extension it’s pollen) are that teal-ish green color. I’ve never seen anything like that 🙀
