Podachaenium eminens

8th July 2012

A gigantic tree daisy growing in cloud forests from Mexico to Costa Rica. I was given a plant and failed to realise that it needed a large pot immediately. It grew slowly through the summer but I was expecting huge growth that didn't materialise.

Unfortunately the starved plant didn't survive the winter. If it had been growing vigorously there is a chance that it would have produced a new shoot from the base and I should have planted it in the ground and not kept it in a pot.

Fortunately I get the chance to live and learn. I was given another plant in spring and planted it straight into the Agave house, where it has grown large and come through the (mild) winter very well.
