I can’t explain the difference. Perhaps her just slightly warmer garden made the difference. Or maybe her soil, which is heavier than mine and has more clay, is more appealing to this plant. Maybe she just has hers in a better spot all around.
Or maybe, just maybe, my garden is just a week or so behind hers and mine will soon look like this.
A gardener can hope.
