Portland’s 3 day heat wave has produced 3 happy discoveries in the danger garden! Two Eucomis that I had given up for dead, one E. Oakhurst (darkest purple leaves) and one E. Pole-Evans (green leaves) are pushing out of the ground.
I’d recently dug very near both of them and thought the bulbs had done a disappearing act because I didn’t dig into them (I do that far too often). Well turns out I was about 5” off in both cases. Thank goodness! Am I the only one that can never remember exactly where I planted something?
Then I discovered this! I do believe that is one of last years Elephant Ears making a come back, the spot doesn’t seem quite right to be one of the new ones I just planted this year. Now if that darn Chinese Yellow Banana would get with the program and show a little green!
Voodoo Lily update: the bud (above - if you even call that a bud?) has grown much taller over the last few days and is starting to swell at the bottom. A bloom any day now!
