Gardeners' Notes:

I picked up this Corokia at a nursery parking lot sale, transplanted it into a bigger pot and left it to fend for itself over a cold wet winter where many of its potted siblings never woke from dormancy. It was a twig with two leaves when I got it, remained a twig with two leaves over the winter, and now has blossomed to a 5 twigged plant with 20 leaves. It has a home in the ground now, where it may play a supporting role to floppier plants. Last update is that it is clearly deader than dead after a dry cold winter that dipped into the teens.
