The spot I had identified as needing filled with blooms this month was one that had previously been filled by Tiarella Spring Symphony. I thrived there for 3 years until it finally succumb to the vine weevil larvae earlier in the year. I mentioned previously that I no longer had the appetite to rescue plants that succumb.
By comparison, the foliage on this plant is less mottled than any other I grow. the label states bright green foliage on red tinted stems. You can see how those red tinted stems hold those crisp white blooms above the heart shaped foliage. The buds look almost metalic. You can see from the shape of the flower as to why it is commonly referred to as Bishop's Hat. It's other common names are Barrenwort, Fairy Wings and would you believe Randy Beef Grass or Horny Goat Weed, according to Wikipedia. I'm not even going to google that for an explanation!
Seen here in the spot that it will call home. It's new companions are proving very slow this year and are only just millimetres above the surface. If truth be told, this whole area needs a bit of a reshuffle. All the plants I grow here seem enjoy this spot so it will just be a case of moving everything forward a wee bit and possibly taking out one of those Aspleniums.
As well as my own series of Bloom and Grow posts this year, I am linking with Jane over at Hoe Hoe Grow. She too is on a similar quest. I will be interested to see what newbie Jane has picked for her garden this month. I can only apologise for not quite sticking to the rules.
