a garden blog, mostly
Oh, I love how that looks, and more than the ultimate flower itself.Very cool. Never seen that before.
Thanks, Reader. This is one of the most interesting seedheads in my garden. A smart gardener in this part of the country plans for how things will look in the winter. I'm not quite there yet, but I'm learning.
This is such a gorgeous plant but I keep thinking very dark blueberries when I look at it instead of blackberries. Go figure.
Randy, the close up photo makes the seeds look bigger than they really are. The seeds are small enough to fit in a standard drinking straw.
Very cool - I like both the bloom and the seedheads. Is this a shade or sun lover?
Kris, this is one of the plants I intend to share with you whenever we get around to doing a plant exchange. I think it does well with a range of sun conditions. This particular plant gets deep shade until the afternoon, then full sun. I have another that bloomed this year in a shadier spot. And I've seen it in another garden (at St. Kate's) where it's in full sun.I have a bunch of seedlings in the ground around the base of this plant. Others are potted up and reay to be shared in the spring. And I will mail seeds to anyone who asks. Well, let's limit that to the first dozen people who ask.
