finally, my favorite mum’s back on the market
A COUPLE OF FALLS AGO, I PRAISED MY THEN-ONE-AND-ONLY MUM, ‘Will’s Wonderful,’ an anything-but-discreet creature with a hot-pink flower with a big golden center. Then last year a lot of you wanted to order it, but found from my link in that old post that its introducer, Ellen Hornig of the former nursery Seneca Hills, was no longer carrying ‘Will.’ But now there a happy ending (or new beginning):
For a moment I thought I’d have to start shipping you divisions myself (KIDDING), but now ‘Will’s Wonderful’ has a proper new home, thanks to a chain of emails, and Ellen, and the good people at Lazy S’s Farm.
Pete Sheuchenko emailed from there this morning with the news: divisions now potted up and ready for action, and sale. My prediction: They’ll all be gone soon. Thankfully, my favorite mum, like all his cousins, is a prolific type, so these will be the first of many next-generation ‘Wills,’ I hope, who’ll find their raucous ways into more fall gardens.
I mean, I’ve since learned to like ‘Sheffield Pink,’ for example, but there will always be only one ‘Will.’ Glad he’s back in circulation.
