    I bet this never happens to anyone else.
    Whenever I plant dwarf flowers they grow large. An example: I have planted zennias which were supposed to be about 18" tall. They grew taller than me. I planted dwarf cannas. They grew tall like regular cannas. The next year I dug some up and gave them to my mother. When she planed them they were dwarf. It isn't our soil. No matter where we have lived this is how my flowers grow.
    Help. please, can anybody tell me what is happening?

    So jealous, wish it was a gift I had. I grow house plants fine but anything outside, nope. Whenever I get new plants for outside my BF says "I see you got some more victims."

    You have been blessed with a green thumb. Enjoy the beautiful plants you are able to grow. And be nice to those of us that can't grow anything but weeds.
