What is that saying? “Be careful what you wish for”? Just a couple of weeks ago I was moaning about the sad state of my Tetrapanax plants this spring. Turns out I had no idea what was cooking just below the surface. It’s the front garden Tetrapanax we’re focusing on. Up top is the mother plant, which lost its height. It's making a rapid comeback, this is how the new shoots look now. Nice huh? Then I noticed this little baby about 2 ft away. Cool! Then I saw this, about 2.5 ft away from mama. And now this, almost 3 ft away! Oh my! Things are getting very interesting indeed! Perhaps their reputation as being a little bit of a thug has a basis after all!
(p.s. I just found two more this morning after I scheduled this post...yikes!)
