Since I'm such an impatient soul sometimes (LOL) thought I'd post this over here as well since this forum gets a lot of activity. Thanks !!

Ya know, Vera...I was thinking that too. I had one that died and now that you mention it, it sure reminds me of it Especially the bud, which as I said, I couldn't get a good pic of. But to me, the bud really resembles Blanketflower.

Guess I will just have to wait and see. I wanted to stick it on into the ground but think a pot is best for now till i figure it out.

Thanks for you help!
