    1. They were big plants--7 gallon size, but it was still too much $$$.

  2. Gosh, that is one expensive plant, it is lovely, you will just have to look at your photos, that's what I do when I cannot afford something I would like.

  4. Oh my.

    They didn't have anything smaller? Perhaps you need to return to the Ruth Bancroft Garden.

    1. No, that was the only size. I assume the plant-nut employees snapped up all the 1 gallons. Yes, a trip to RBG might be cheaper!

    1. I was disappointed by the price, to say the least.

  6. I knew when I saw it it was going to be expensive but that price tag still surprised me. Maybe in a few years (or 10?) that price will come down into a more affordable range. Years ago I really wanted a yellow Clivia for my former (shady) garden but the early prices were similarly stratospheric and now they're everywhere for a fraction of the price.

    1. Very true, in a couple of years they will be everywhere for 12.99, I expect.

      My yellow Clivia is doing well.

  7. Too bad, at first I should think they made a mistake and it should be $ 14.90. Nevertheless it is a beauty but not for that price.

  8. Sheeesh. That's just too much money, honey. But the plant is a stunner!

    1. Even if that first "1" was missing it would be too much. But yes, a stunner alright.

  9. Lots of blog chatter about this new leuc. I'm not sure I'm on board yet -- it's so dark unless placed carefully it will make a black hole. And yet I'm not sure I want to set up a permanent high-contrast partner for it in the garden. A container. Yes, I'd try it first in a container. Okay. Want.

    1. Aha! Gotcha!

      There's a lot of red in the leaves. Would be thrilling back lit in the afternoon with red flowers all around...when it costs $12.99, that is.

  10. Armstrong's has them in 2 gallon pots for $35 Native sons grown. :) I already grabbed one. I'm surprised Roger's didn't bring in smaller ones...

    1. I assume the employees already bought those, she replied as she ran out the door on her way to Armstrong's...
