My pretty orange star

042211-013

I was picking up 99 cents pineapple the other day at Safeway and came across this lovely perennial called the Orange Star (or Sun Star). It was love at first sight, so she came home to live with me. (Hey, I was saving buckaroos on the pineapples so why not?)

I think she’s going to reside in the front living room, but my mind isn’t made up yet. Stay tuned.

    bought same plant at easter time but it grew so tall it is now bending over with the weight of the orange flowers at the end. How do you trim these plants, where do you start to remove the spent flowers or do you remove whole stem???

We'd love to hear what you think!
