I tried a few other cultivars because I couldn't find my original one for a couple of years .. they were not up to snuff at all.
So I was too happy to finally find the right one this past Spring .. I planted it in just about the same spot as my previous love .. hoping that it would take to its new home. Well it did more than that .. it shot off like a rocket .. I had never seen one so tall as it was getting. I panicked ... thinking that if we had bad wind and rains this new love would be battered and spoiled. So I pinched it back .. thinking it would be sturdier (this cultivar is very sturdy on its one usually) .. and now look what I have created.
Alien heads ... you can't tell me they don't look like the head of that "Alien" movie .. They popped up in the plant structure so oddly I have a hard time looking at it, let alone taking pictures .. so if anyone has ever had this happen to them .. please tell me I'm not going to have that "squid kid" burst out of my chest ????
