well they never tol dme that when i bought it.. oh well i will leave it where it is.. as it gets tall they tol dme and will be great back drop for other plants when it does finally flower

wintersong.. i also move plants at least once.. as it takes one year of flowering to see if it fits... i try to move to much as my mum says they do not like it.. but it is the hardest part.. all right if starting with a clear fresh patch.. can place them better.. but not when it is well up and running.

@wintersong.. yeah.. i bought a tuba with very long roots and was told it was an orange foxtail lily.. i have planted it and it is has spiked upwards thin long leafs from the base of the plant.. they are very simular colour of carnation leaves.. but not so bluey if you get me.. i will get a picture of it tomorrow so you can see it..

i am beginning to think i have been ripped off..
