Several years ago, while we were visiting Carolyncat down in Westlake La. I feel in love with her shrimp plant. Well I ordered one from a nursery in Texas. It was small but did well during it's first summer. I knew it wouldn't survive zone 6 winters, so it was planted in a container and is moved to my friend's greenhouse for the winter. Last year it grew leaps and bounds in the greenhouse. This year it has provided twenty to thirty cuttings and got married to a mandevilla that was setting next to it all winter. They became entangled with each other. You know how love is.
I hope everyone is having fun in your gardens. Bill Mitchell
