Pic of the Day--Paradise Glory

Postby Hank Zumach » Sep 15, 2007 9:44 am

Hi All--Paradise Glory has shown a nice growth rate in our Friendship Garden. The plant was a sparse 18x13 in 2006 but became a much thicker clump of 21x13 this summer. The first photo, taken in late September of 2006 shows the center coloring has faded to white from the yellow center in the second photo, taken in late June of 2007. This attractive sport of Paul's Glory has very nice substance and so I'm not expecting any slug problems as it works its way to being a medium sized clump at maturity.

Very Nice! I have to say, I am partial to the wide edge bands on these! Looks like it enjoys your placement!

Hank,

What is the ground cover under this one?

Thanks Hank. That's what I thought. I have sweet woodruff, but was thinking of getting rid of it because it seems to be strangling some plants, but you don't seem to have that problem. It really is a beautiful companion plant with hosta, and so wonderfully fragrant in spring.

Gloria--I think you have to be somewhat selective with what you plant it but with taller plants, it works OK.
