Uhm... Well that's not 'as advertised'

These were billed as 'Leprechaun Gold" and while they have the characteristic green and gold variegated leaves of the variety they don't have little purple flowers....

I'm not upset - I like them all the same. I think they're cute! It's just not what I was expecting after weeks of close watch, waiting, anticipating a burst of purple color along the walkway next to our house.

After all that teasing me with gradually purple-ing buds! Purpling? That's not a word.

 They look like little fairy skirts to me. They're awfully cute. Maybe I'll be a columbine for halloween....
