Re: Louisianas- Favorites? and Rebloomers?
This should probably have gone under the moles-voles thread, however it
Louisianas...and Rebloomers? better.
I have had RED DAZZLER and RED ECHO rebloom in our garden. Unfortunately,
voles love Louisianas almost as much as they relish tulips. We mulched our
LAs heavily and that is a recipe for disaster vice voles. We lost about 80%
of our LAs on an upswing vole year (They follow a cyclical population
pattern as do varying hares, lynx, lemmings, etc) and lost the rest in the
next, peak, year.
Have not solved the LA problem yet -- have put all my hostas in 1/4 inch
mesh wire cages sunk 18 inches deep -- works most of the time. So far have
done without LAs rather than trying to grow them in jail.
