I wish I could tell you the name of this beauty.  A friend gave me some rhizomes several years ago, he has since moved away.  They never bloomed where I planted them so a couple years ago I moved them.  Finally this year it woke up rewarding us with the most magnificent, huge blooms.  Hope you like it, too.

YAY!!! It's beautiful, Diane!

I purchased some delphinium & munstead lavender yesterday. My fingers are crossed that I will have this kind of luck in getting it to grow! :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Wow! Like it lots. So unusual. I just spent some time moving my Walking Stick bush to a better location. I got it from my daughter and I kept nailing it with the mower. Oops! Have a great Memorial Day weekend! Kit
