Penlan progress

Here is a progress report on all the plants that I obtained from Penlan Perenials. When they arrived only one had green leaves already, others had noticable shoots, others had nothing showing at all.

Happily all are now growing well.

Here we go in the same order as in the post marking their arrival.

Ligularia przewalskii

This is growing well and is not wilting during this dry spell, so that is good.

I bought another one and it is suffering a bit.

Actaea simplex ‘Brunette’

The leaves blend into the background in this photo but it is growing quite well.

Geranium wallichianum ‘Crystal Lake’

This was marked as having just been potted up from a bare root plant on the order and to wait until roots are showing before planting it out. It has taken a long time to grow any leaves - I was a bit worried for a while - but within the last few weeks it is growing well.

Geum 'Cosmopolitan' (Cocktails Series)

This now has its first flower which deserves its own post.

Campanula ‘Sarastro’

It has also taken a while to get going but after having a few low lying leaves for quite a time, it is now starting to grow a stem upwards.

Geranium versicolor

Planted out on the more shaded side of the garden. It may have to move as it is getting a bit crowded where it is.
