I guess that is the way of all living things ? ... but this one is stubborn and I had to move it.
So it might be even more hesitant in going through the process of giving "birth" ? to it's flowers.
I think it will survive the shock though.
We have finally had a rain day, well over night for sure ... phew !
I hand watered from 8 AM to 1:30 PM without a break on Sunday and I am feeling every bit of it now ... I have never had to cut back so many astilbe because they fried in my shade section ugh!
Otherwise though some nice pictures of plants before that hiccup ?
I couldn't resist the "balloons" of flowers still not opened ...
They do support some of the plants amazingly ... it was my most fascinating plant of the year and I can't wait to see them next Spring again !
I am not complaining about its growth it just needs another place or my little treasures hidden in it need to move ... one or the other is going to happen !
It is the only Phlox I have for now.
This is a very understated little tree treasure of mine.
It has been putting up with dry shade for a few years now and I appreciate that very much.
Spring brings out the beautiful purple foliage that progresses to green by summer.
It has wonderful twists and turns and I help it along with that .. a bit of fun shaping it to how I like it.
