I’m totally stoked that my Rodger’s flower is off to a great start with six potential blooms. Garden guests talk about this flower most because of its unique and lasting look.
- Unlike most perennials, the blooms last all summer as they emerge and die out in stages.
- It adds needed height and texture to beds. My plant has reached 2.5 feet, as it looks like mini palm trees early on.
- The spectacular form accentuated by white blooms. I planted Lobelia underneath this summer to hopefully create a contrasting floor.
Be patient and water often – don’t let a Rodger’s flower dry out. It needs some sun and years to mature. It had no blooms planting summer, two in 2010, and one in 2011 with more leaves. With six blooms coming on, there is good reason to be stoked.
I will add photos as it matures.
