Sadly this interesting plant was not meant to be. First off, I misread the nursery tag. I purchased it hoping for a smallish plant, and obviously stopped reading after the word ‘compact’, ignoring the word ‘giant’. And it did got pretty giant for its location so I made a mental not to move it the following year. Despite potentially needing more sun that we get, it did pretty well, and acted as a nice complement to the surrounding water plants. But sadly our landscapers lopped it off during the fall cleanup, and it never came back! Perhaps I’ll try again with a smaller variety someday!
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!
