Garden club reportPosted Sunday, June 8, 2008, at 11:01 AM
We had a lively meeting this past Friday evening. Lots of great hints, tips, a mystery as well as a seed and plant swap. espoontoon had to bring his truck to carry all the hollyhocks, dill, marigolds, astilbe and something else I forgot (sorry). Barbara brought seeds of her favorite hollyhocks and Steve brought more kanlanchoe and garlic chives.
The mystery we worked on was trying to identify, then find a source for a plant that has been passed down for several generations. We searched the internet for widow's tears, bluebells, and a few other names I can not remember right now.
It seems to multiply through red, pine cone-shaped tubers under the ground. Yes, it has blue flowers and heart shaped leaves. The roots overwinter under the house or in cool dark environment. Sound familiar? We would LOVE to know what it is and find a reliable supply.
We got close on the internet search, but never won the prize.
