This guy got outcompeted by some purple New Zealand Burr and I moved it – seems to be pretty happy in fairly poor soil but does show some slug damage and slow growth. I’d love to have a large mat of these guys if I could find a spot for that – and wanted to spend the buy a bunch at once – they seem to cost as much as any other hosta despite their diminutive size!
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!
