Re: bowman's root

Thanks Gene,
I got a Gillenia from you about 5 yrs ago for our MG Woodland Fen. Couldn't find it there for a couple of years so I thought they'd killed it. Just this year I saw it in full bloom and it's a beauty. Now I am looking at Sunfarm's offerings for plants to grow in our nursery for next and future year's plant sales and they offer Porteranthus, same common name. On checking RHS, both names are shown, neither as a syn for the other, indicating to me that they are different plants.

Is it a slow grower?

Same plant. One more the powers are trying to change the name on. Whatever they call the plant, it is a nice native plant. Gets a bit large at 3 to 4 feet in height, about two around, looks like a shrub in many ways. Wonderful, white/pink three petal blooms on stems so that the whole plant seems to move with the most gentle of winds. Good textured foliage. Easy to grow and takes some dry open shade as in edge of the woods or along a path in shade.

Are Gillenia trifoliata and Porteranthus trifoliatus the same plant?
