  1. Summer results:
    English Daisy: Planted in front bed next to driveway. daisies were small, < 4" tall, did produce pink flowers, and had some evergreen properties finally dieing off around January 2010. Columbine: Planted 6 plants in raised bed next to back patio. None got larger than 5" tall, and did not produce flowers. Will be looking to see if they return this year. Rudbeckia Hirta: Planted 3 plants in front bed next to driveway. All got about 2.5' tall and produced a number of flowers. The plants were leggy, and should have been pruned before flowering, but will see how they go this year. Shasta Daisy: Planted 2 or 3? in front yard, produced no flowers, but expect I will get flowers this year.
