Re: Redbud - Echium - can't win em all


Thanks for the offer Bonnie, but I still have another Redbud in the back yard. I think I will actually be happy to have sun on the south side again. It was just sad to see it die like that.

Do you want another redbud? I always have plenty of seedlings and will pot
up one to send to you this fall if you want.

Frankly Ceres, I don't know much - or I know too much - about this plant.
I
was on one of Chris's other Lists for a while - Mediterranean plants -
and
people kept talking about them so I looked them up and thought they were
wonderful. Then I saw an Echium listed hardy to Zone 5 in the Seneca Hill
catalogue and ordered it for one of our Display Gardens, but I don't know
how it fared.  Then I saw this one offered by Green Mtn Transplants in
Maine. One said E russicum, the other, E rubrum, but I've since figured
out
they are the same plant.  GMT and Seneca both said it was a perennial.
Other sources say biennial.  As in my message to Jim, the zone listings
are
all over the place.  But after digging it up to overwinter in a pot
twice,
even though advice says it resents transplanting, then leaving it in the
ground this past, harsh winter and openly exposed to a horrible April,
this
Echium is thriving.  I will post another picture when it blooms.  And I
think I'll order more from GMT.

The 10 yr old redbud though is a goner.  Hard to understand.
