Perfect Place

Arisaema intermedium

Arisaema intermedium

I found the perfect planting place for this little gem.

But you'll have to check out my album to see it. 

When I shrink the photo to put it into a journal, you can see nothing.

He is green and very small so will need to be contrasted and placed front of the border.

Great place Rachel, will look well there.

Got that one on Sunday. Lovin' it!

Jacinta, it has your mouse plant to keep it company. The mouse plant isn't flowering so I can't tell but are they similar?

It will fit perfectly in your bog "bed" which sits perfectly among those big leaves of hostas and the other big dark ones at the back (cant think now what they are called!)

Rachel have just looked at the photos,  and what colours  in your garden and looks so good, beautiful.

Myrtle, the Arisaema is not a bog plant so it will go at the base of the planter. The dark planter should highlight its greenness.

Thank you, Clare. I must admit a bit of a bit in colour at the moment. But the alliums and irises are coming so, hopefully, not for long :)

Sorry Rachel, it will indeed look lovely there. (I'm inclined not to take in details of plants that I wont be having in my garden, the brain can only take so much information as you get older!)( A bit like my garden which is limited to how many more plants I can get!)

Are you feeling older now that you are an expectant granny again, Myrtle? Congratulations, by the way. We're all the same - we take scant note of something we can't or don't want to grow.

:) not just feeling older :)
