|I wanted to make sure the bed was wide enough to contain the plants once they had grown to full size|
|It took no time for this plant to grow several feet high and wide|
In keeping with a theme of large leaved plants I moved a large hosta from the front of the house and divided it into three plants. I was shocked at how quickly the divisions grew. Each division is now almost the size of the original plant!
|The hostas in this picture were divisions of just one plant!|
Columbine 'Winky Purple-White' (Aquilegia vulgaris), Speedwell 'Blue Bouquet' (Veronica spicata) and Hardy Geranium 'Samobor' (Geranium phaeum).
When I expanded the bed in spring I went right around to the back of the garage. Here I placed Lily of the Valley and the mystery corm. I thought the corm was a tropical plant and would like the heat. Surprise! A dear relative was able to identify this plant for me and hot is NOT what this plant was looking for.
|The leaves finally opened!|
