Dictamnus albus var. purpureas blooming in my new garden
I previously wrote about Dictamnus albus var. purpureas (commonly known as pink burning bush) here. In that post I talked about the dictamnus I had in my old garden at Froggy Bottom. These plants in the picture above are at my new garden, but they are the very same plants which I dug up and moved. As you can see, the move did not bother them at all, even though I dug them up and them left them sitting out of the ground for more than a month before I planted them! This experience is completely contrary to the oft-repeated maxim that dictamnus do not like to be moved. I think this is true of a lot of garden lore--much of it has not been scientifically tested, and may not be true. Anyway, this is a great plant, as I wrote previously, and it is a shame that you do not see it more in nurseries.
