Gardeners' Notes:

Negative Magnolia_texas On Jan 24, 2009, Magnolia_texas from Magnolia, TX wrote:

I bought two of these plants and I and a friend both found the plant to be a very sparse bloomer and we saw no butterflies nectar on the blooms which did develop. The plant was on a raised bed in full sun. The plant freezes to ground in the winter.

The flowers are really late for me, opening in October in Oregon. It is blooming through some light frosts though, and lavender flowers are rare in fall, so I like it.

This shrub blooms in late fall in Atlanta, and is very unusual. Rostrinucula dependens starts easily from seed, and although a member of the mint family, it has never been a pest in our garden like many members of the mint family can be.
