Flash forward to last week when I was at my local Armstrong Garden Center and what do I see, a whole flat of 4" pots of that Gomphrena "Fireworks". Now, it's the dog days of summer, 90º out and I shouldn't be planting. But I was pissed off that it was so difficult to get back in winter and here it is so easy to get now! Ugh, so I bought another. Had I a bunch of money I would have bought 10 as it's an amazing plant that makes great cut flower filler too! Said to be an annual, I hope it lasts longer than just this year.
