Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Linny1 On Jun 27, 2010, Linny1 from (Linny) Salem, SC (Zone 7b) wrote:

I purchased a rather magnificent hanging basket on June 26, 2010, at Head-Lee Nursery in Seneca, SC. I had no idea what it was and neither did they, but I believe it to be a Bridal Veil, withlacooche, because of the photo I found here on Dave's Garden, by plantladylin. I will keep you posted as to how it does. I am new to this site but will post a photo if it is possible.
