This is how that same garden looks a couple weeks later
Notice the difference?
The Pink Muhly has "grown" pretty fast. Well, not exactly. It was actually Regardening #2, as I replaced the still new 6" Pink Muhly with even newer, larger ones. I had looked all over town for the large size Pink Muhly before settling on the 6" plants thinking I needed to get them in the ground. Of course, as soon as I did I spotted the larger 10" plants and decided to make another switch. Sooo... Regardening strikes again in the same spot. And of course DH has been so very pleased to help...ha ha ha.
A bit obsessive? Perhaps. But this is the most visible spot in the front yard, the area we see first every time we leave or return. My concern was the smaller plants might not bloom well this year and after eighteen months of sad looking grasses there I'm ready to see a nice display this fall. Sometimes obsessive makes good gardening sense.
I'm really, really, done replacing these now. Unless of course I find the five gallon size ready to bloom....
