All winter I cared for these two gerber daisy plants that we purchased last summer. One did well all winter on the metal rack by the sliding doors and one didn’t do as well. The bigger and stronger one even bloomed once inside shortly after I brought it in last fall. The other, I really had my doubts about whether or not it would make it through until spring.

The other day when I was watering, I noticed that the smaller and weaker plant had a blossom on it. Today, I was treated to a full fledged flower — now I remember why I cared for them so much through the whole winter — because they have the most beautiful pink flowers. The stronger and bigger plant still hasn’t produced a flower.

Lesson learned here – never discount the smaller and the weaker — they might surprise you in the end.
