This is one of those plants I spy at the nursery and buy because I like it, then have to find a place to put it. Unfortunately when I got home and did a little research, most resources put this in the full sun category (though the nursery tag staged sun to part shade). So I had a hard time placing this given the full sun spots are kinda used up. I ended up siting this in the front garden bed – we’ll see how it fares.
I love the flowy leaf texture and pink tubular flowers, but it’s a bit too similar looking to the geraniums growing in the same bed. I suspect I may move this to a different spot in a year or two, especially if one opens up on the south easement.
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!
