garden success.

mcallister's aunt maybeth gave us clippings from her garden to transplant last year. they all had roots except these 'sticks' that she had been keeping in a bucket of water. i was laughing when she told us just to stick 'em in the ground with a coat of rooting powder and they would grow. (she IS like the president of NOTL's horticulture club so what could I say)

it wouldn't be the first time we smuggled plants over the border - but check out these sticks now! they grew like CRAZY and bloom these beautiful WHITE daisies (just a guess) each FALL. I have no idea what the plant name is - but we like to call it white daisies on a stick.

SUMMER 2006


FALL 2007



we need more plants like these in our garden. does anyone know what they are called?

I'm guessing it's in the Aster family because of the daisy-like flower. It's a succulent looking leaf; appears hardly.

Let's experiment with propagating them this fall/spring...

Are call the original owner for advise...
