Lampranthus sp.‘Pink Kaboom’ 

BIG FABOOSH BLOOM with ZERO MAINTENANCE, kiddos! Our recently retired propagator, Anni Jensen, planted a mysterious little start of this plant in our parking lot, which has the worst hard-pan clay soil you can imagine- andwe never watered it. Quickly, it grew into a dense, rounded, 2’ x 3’, succulent leaved mound, and in Spring, it explodedinto this astounding mass of these blindingly-brightest pink daisies. Thrill the neighbors, but hand out sunglasses! Although we didn’t, I would water it a bit till established.
