Guess what I saw while I was out in the garden...Sweet Woodruff. I thought it had all died last summer but there are just a couple of sprigs left.

Should I try and move it over by the evergreen bushes so that it is shaded? That's the only place I can think of right now that is shady most of the time. The partial shade it's in now isn't shady enough I learned that last year.

it does need a good bit of shade to do well.

the bunch that i planted last year came up and even spread out - just about doubled in size from what i planted last year!

i was concerned because the spot gets a bit more sun than i thought would be good for the woodruff...i put it in behind the daylily tho, so i guess that was good enough to provide a decent amount of shade.

mine have the cutest little white flowers on them...does yours?

no mine is just a couple of little springs of green. No flowers at all. Maybe the anenome's will grow thick enough to provide shade for the wooddruff?

Well I transplanted one twig. We'll see how that does.

I'm happy to report that it didn't wilt and seems to like it's new home quite well. I'm thinking of moving over the other couple of sprigs too. I'm afraid the anemone's will choke it out. I don't know if that is possible but I don't want to take any chances. There really is only a tiny bit there.
