They came up like normal, then I noticed a few of them had the odd white veining—then they just stopped growing, and the edges started to brown (the strange tadpole-like shapes on the soil are blooms from the neighbor's tree).
Here's a photo from last September, they'd been through a rough stretch of heat, smoke (from wildfires) and more sun than previous years, since the neighbors had a few trees removed. Yet they still looked fabulous!
This year, not so much. They should be full size by now but they just refuse to grow. I did put some fresh mulch on them back in early March. I wonder if that's to blame?Weather Diary, May 4: Hi 69, Low 45/ Precip 0
