    Posted by on 17th Jun 2014

    They have been in the ground for maybe a month of cool spring weather and have thrived but are this week just beginning to grow new leaves. I just love these ratibida pinnatas. They are so whimsical. Such a carefree feeling comes over you every time you see them. So glad I could find them.
