Luckily my friend had a few plants to spare and I happily trucked them back to Coeur d'Alene. I wasn't very timely in getting the transplants in the ground - in fact I'm pretty sure it was late September before I managed to dig them in. Knowing my penchant for digging things up (not always by accident), I placed a large marker in the spot and anticipated my own flock of geese in the spring!
Even with the plant marker I managed to rip out a shoot during one of the marathon weeding sessions this spring. But I guess invasive species are hard to knock down, and I am delighted to say that my GNLS is a healthy flock of two with some goslings shooting up alongside. Hal swears we'll wake up one morning surrounded by white goosenecks.
