Re: spuria stalk/clump?


I'll try to get you a photo of a whole clump this week. A t the moment I
have a patch which has a clump of Mahogany Lord, Goldmania, Chestnut Chime,
Terra Nova (midbrown), Big Cloud and Snow Hawk. The mixing of the shades of
brown with yellow and white is stunning.
Spurias are fantastic for floral arrangements also.

They don't like humid wet summers, does that rule you out? They are very
tolerant of summer-dry soils, most pHs, poor soils etc although this won't
get you the best perforamce.. I consider them the ultimate set-and-forget
garden plant. They usually sulk bloom-wise for a year after moving, so like
to be left in the one place for 5-10 years. They are so tall (3-5 feet) you
just stick them at the back of the bed. Fantactic for naturalizing.
