Back in March my Dad gave me some Sweet William that had been transplanted from my great grandmother's flowerbed. It was cold the day he gave it to me, and when I brought it home I put it straight in my partial shade flower bed with some water.
It seems like every other thing I plant in this bed bites the dust, so I'm thrilled to see now that the Sweet William seems to be thriving. Even since I took this picture a couple of weeks ago with my cell phone, it has spread more.
Readers, do you have any plants that were passed down from family?
