This guy has been trucking along in a cedar planter in a shaded corner of our deck. It puts out maybe 2 beautiful flowers every year, despite my pruning it as recommended. I’m sure it would like a littel more sun. Unfortunately, the leaves are plagued by leaf miners or thrips in midsummer and it doesn’t look that great after flowering. I’m still rooting for it though, hoping it will come into its own after a couple more seasons.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
