I began watching a small green plant that I was not sure would even have a bloom,did not know what it was. Jim planted the dried blooms that our daughter gave us last fall, that someone had given her and did not tell her what it was.
Then it grew and grew and began to put on little blooms, which have grown into hugh blooms. I finally found out it is a cockscomb. I did not know they ever got this big. I guess it will keep growing til frost. It is about 6 ft now.
This plant has made my summer, it is like a work in progress, and you have to check it, and if you miss a few days it has really changed.
