We were gifted a fairly large dormant plant (Petasites giganteus) and we're trying to ensure success in growing it. We have both shaded and sunny WET spots (Coastal Atlantic Acid Soil) but we also have frequent strong winds. Just how delicate are the leaves and stalks and, has anyone had experience growing this plant under strong wind conditions? Comments and advice much appreciated. keyplayerATnsDOTsympaticoDOTca
I planted one "Common Butterbur" that I got from the wild at Fort Drum, NY, (Zone #3) and planted it at my home in Medina, NY (Zone #5) and it just took off - now I have about a 25 ft section in my backyard and I just love it.
