Still Waiting on 'Clara Curtis' and the Winner Is...

I figured since you've been waiting in anticipation for the winner of the $50 Lowe's Gift Card from Lowe's Creative Ideas that I would share with you a picture of something I'm waiting on - 'Clara Curtis' mums to bloom.  These beautiful daisy flowered mum that I received at a plant swap several years ago have grown and spread into a large display just off our front porch sidewalk.  I had no clue they would grow so large and next spring I'll have to do some serious dividing.

'Clara Curtis' spreads under the soil's surface with rhizomes.  This makes division probably the easiest ways to propagate this mum.  Cuttings aren't a challenge either - as with other mums it roots very easily!  It won't be long before 'Clara Curtis' blooms, just a few more days but I won't make you wait to find out the winner of the gift card!

By a random drawing of all entries in the first post, second post, and third post about the contest (only one entry was allowed per person) the winner is...


Congratulations essuzy!  Please send your mailing address to my email: and I'll have the gift card mailed right to you!

Thank you everyone for reading Growing The Home Garden and participating in the drawing!
