2015: Bought one plant at Gloria’s Gardens in Prairie du Sac–for next to nothing and brought it home in a grocery bag–what an experience! Planted it in the east bed. It didn’t seem to thrive there, often looking wilted. Maybe the ash took too much moisture? May move it next year if I can find a good home for it.
