My creeping jenny is dying. I think it is sunburnt. I guess I will mark that one off the list.
Next, my Siberian iris, I planted it in a large plastic dark green pot. I filled it with sort of a heavy clay dirt, and put it in that.
My trouble is when it rains, the rain sets on the top of the soil in the pot and does not drain. The top of the pot is probably 5 inches above water, but the pot stays full because it doesn't drain. I have to go out and manually tip it over and let it run out and then set it back up again. I am afraid this will rot the plant. Does anyone else have this trouble, and what should I do?
The other thing is, I am concerned about what to do w my Siberian iris come winter. Can I leave it in the pot sitting in the water? It will all freeze of course.
Next I have a Jap Iris I just planted. Same question- how do I over winter it?
I would love to find a plant that would grow like weeds all around the edge of my pond, be winter hardy, and not need potted. I would be tickled pink if I could find something like that.
I tried some parrots feather, but it died. I have some chameleon plant in their now, but it doesn't' seem to be growing at all, and is also sun burnt. My pond is in total full sun.
