Sorbaria for Adoption

Sorbaria leaves just appearing

Sorbaria leaves just appearing

I have Sorbaria shrubs planted in the south bed and while clearing up last week I removed some runners and potted them up. If anyone would like some I will send them to the get together next month, the photo doesn't really do them justice as the foilage is just coming out really good leaf colour and white plume type flowers in the summer. In the May 2010 album are photos giving a better idea of it leaf colour.

I agree, Jacinta, a plant well worth having. I have it in the Inner Circle and just noticed the leaves coming out the other day - beautiful!

Trish, we are meeting at Johnstown Garden Centre on 5th of March. If you can make it, please let me know.

Geraldine I have never seen such a lot of lovely photos I will look in again at them when I have time to have a better look.

Rachel Rachel 05 February 2011 23:25:50

Geraldine, I promised you some Anaphalis. Will there be someone going to the get-together from Monaghan?

Cloncaw Cloncaw 05 February 2011 23:56:51

Rachel, Mary (Keego) is going and I have arranged that she will take down some plants for me as promised so I'm sure that Mary will bring it back to Cavan and I can pick it up from there. Mary is going to take Campanula Elizabeth for you, Jacinta, Perwinkle and Clare and Scabious Blue Butterfly for Una. Wish I could make it but Saturday's are out for me.

Thanks Clare I just hope my garden looks as well as it did last year this season.

Jacinta D Jacinta D 06 February 2011 06:12:10

Thanks a million, Geraldine. We will have to do the next get-together on a Sunday.

Fran no problem, there is a lovely photo of it planted around Sambucas Black Lace in June 2010 about row 9. I will also pot up a bit of Campanula Elizaberth for you if it appeals to you have a look in the June photos further down around row 29 and bit below is an even better photo just let me know.

Rachel Rachel 06 February 2011 12:04:29

Ok, thanks, Geraldine. I will divide my Anapahlis by then and send some up to you via Mary.

Unfortunately Johnstown could not accommodate us of a Sunday.
