Do these happen to grow well in the shade too?? I have tons myself but all are in the full sun, I am in the process of making a full shade bed and would like to transplant some over to the new bed. Also anyone know a good site where I can find a list of shade loving plants??
Thanks for ANY help.
Mollybee - I think they will grow ANYWHERE! I have them all over, in sun, shade and everything in between They were apparantly a very popular plant with the family that owned this place for 100 years. They also survive if you dig them out and forget to replant them! I have some down under the cedar break that bloom late, but still bloom.
Well now I can transplant some on over to the new bed. I'm glad to know that I can use it as a filler because I have been wanting to thin out the other bed because it has so much Star of Bethlaham in it, it seems to be taking over. I like plants that you can thin out to make more!! then there is also the option to trade it off for something I don't have. I'm sure I'll be posting later about wanting to trade it off for other shade loving stuff.
I saw some of these in a town garden in the city when we parked our car. The sun had not reached them quite and the buds were closed. When we returned to pick up the car the sun was on them and the flowers had opened. I naturally thought they only bloomed when the sun hit them. Glad to see this is not the case because I was thinking of growing them under trees.
