Denver Daisy, Day Fifteen
What an overachiever! The Rudbeckia Denver Daisy, a Plant Select specimen chosen to commemorate Denver's 150th anniversary, is supposed to take twenty days to germinate, but this seedling (center, above) popped up five days early. In the process, though, it left all its potential siblings in the dust. Literally.
I'd tossed an entire packet of seeds that the city was handing out free into a spare pot I had in my office. So far, only one sprout has appeared. But hope, if not the Rudbeckia Denver Daisy. springs eternal. -- Patricia Calhoun
