Survival of the Divided Perennial
May 2, 2008
A couple of days ago, I divided and relocated some overgrown perennials in my garden.
The larger chunk of bleeding heart seems to be happy and doing well in its new location in the back yard garden:
The Siberian iris is bouncing back and I hope it’ll recover this spring to bloom later this summer:
The Centaurea montana likes its new spot in the side bed in the back yard:
Time will tell if the bleeding heart and hosta will have enough growing space without duking it out this summer. So far so good:
And the hosta in the front bed seems to like its new location under the apple tree:
The forecast has been calling for rain for the next three days so I won’t have to worry about watering them while they settle in. There’s only one small transplanted chunk of bleeding heart that doesn’t look like it’s going to make it. I’ll be happy as long as the other two larger chunks do well.
