between

this plant has been around for a few years.  i should say misplaced.  it was put in a spot where it was crowded and hard to get at.  not exactly a good way to make crosses.  some plants tolerate crowding better.  some do the crowding and others get crowded.  and you never quite know until afterwards.  a new plant next to an established plant often becomes a crowding victim.  a case of timing rather than weakness.   and some just lack that little bit of an edge and get out grown.  believe it or not plants are competitive and if they can out grow their neighbor they will.  so eventually i find out just how much room a plant needs.  and if i want to give it more room.  this is one that is going to get the room for now.  the garden – and life in general – is a constant series of adjustments.  now to make some of those crosses.  three images…

    I think I will stick to my all plants compete. Even two siblings. If push comes to shove if one sibling is growing stronger it would tend to crowd out the other weaker plant, whether it is a sibling or not. Glad you enjoy the flower ! Thanks for your comment !
