One of my oldest plants FINALLY bloomed!


This blew me away!
I have been nursing what I thought was a Columbine of some kind for the last two years and this little container plant has finally decided to “show off” this spring with the most exotic bloom that I have ever seen:

I grew this little guy in seed starter from seed and have nursed it from near death to the present. It was transplanted from seed starter into “Scotts potting soil” the first year, (back before I knew what I was doing) and that crappy soil has been gradually amended with paramagnetic volcanic sands, sugars, compost, and watered with a special compost and fish emulsion tea mixture for about a year. I think he likes the special organic treatments! What do you think?

I have one almost the same n20, it's called 'Songbird' though it doesn't receive the culinary attention that yours gets, well done on a little beauty.

It's a "songbird" variety Heron?
That positive I.D. helps me SO much in tailoring his organic ingredients to better suit my little baby! Once I know what the specific species of any plant is, I can research its' specific soil requirements and adjust the ingredients to give the plant the optimum growing environment..

N2organics I would like to think I could become something of a 'chef'...I wouldn't know where to start..Beautiful flower....

I'm just SO glad to see my little baby happy! Guess what? It shed the petals from that bloom last night and has FOUR new blooms developing! The "pod" that the bloom was on now has what appears to be a "seed-pod". I'll be watching it closely and see if I can harvest some seeds when the pod is ready.
What a cool little plant! :-))))
