And here's carex 'Bowles Golden'...yea, the golden color here is because it's dead...dried up...lifeless! And it's a bargain at only $7.99!!
The plants that were alive had spent way too much time in their pots! Needless to say, I had to cut this poor thing from it's plastic prison!
So I set my plan in motion: repot these pathetic botanical misfits and wait until they grow into these 4" pots and become something worth planting out in the yard! I mean, if they can't survive coddled in pots, then they surely won't make it in the garden with plant competition and animals to contend with. Now before anybody sez' "I told you so" with regard to Michigan Bulb-I have dealt with these folks before, and it's a large credit ($179.00) from past failures that brought me back. I got some bareroot stuff too, which was much larger and more worthwhile. But the flashy photos in the catalog made me forget that when they describe the plant as "potted" but don't specify size...well this is what you get! "You get what you pay for"...not so much!
