This was the first year for Carpenter Shavings in my garden, and it was impressive. The growing conditions were not good, with poor rocky soil and blazing heat against a white wall, but the plant seemed to ignore all of that and just kept on blooming and blooming for an extended time. It had so many scapes that I finally counted them. 14 at once! That's not blossoms; that's individual scapes, with multiple blooms on each one. It was a veritable bouquet all by itself.
