Gardening is like cooking. To improve, you need to be willing to make mistakes and experiment. Also, common names are garbage. Zone 9b, West Sac, CA.

I bought this plant in a one-gallon container a few months ago and split it into four plants that went into different spots in the backyard. They took root separation surprisingly well, barely showing signs of trauma. I just needed to water them regularly. This month, they began flowering for the first time. 12Sept2020 #californianative
