Q. Who is Mr. Smarty Plants?

A: There are those who suspect Wildflower Center volunteers are the culpable and capable culprits. Yet, others think staff members play some, albeit small, role. You can torture us with your plant questions, but we will never reveal the Green Guru's secret identity.

Please forgive us, but Mr. Smarty Plants has been overwhelmed by a flood of mail and must take a break for awhile to catch up. We hope to be accepting new questions again soon. Thank you!

Title: Propagation of Limonium limbatum
Answered by: Jimmy Mills

QUESTION:

I have a Limonium limbatum but do not know how to propagate the plant. Can you help with this?

ANSWER:

Mr. Smarty has searched, but hasn’t found any specific information about the propagation of Limonium limbatum (Transpecos sealavender).

Here are some links about plant propagation in general that may prove helpful.
