Three of you are correct! It is a 2 year old root, dug up and kept dormant in my basement,
of the 4 O'clock--"Broken Colors".
Wish it could have gone longer. What gave it away?????
I was amazed how fast and how big the roots will grow on this plant!
Even after just the first year--see how big the roots grew?
The specs disappear after a while.
These are the same roots I planted the following spring--and then dug up and stored them.
In Feb. or March--I semi buried the roots in some soil and waited for some signs of life.
That is what I posted above.
Anyone else--while we wait for Linda?
Maybe we should send her a D-mail to wake her up....Geez! I hope she is OK!!!
