Remember my recent bloodroot post - the one about what the heck happened to them, they didn't return?
Well, today I was out there digging some holes to plant Anemone sylvestris (to fill in the empty space left by the bloodroot) and what do I find? Yep - bloodroot rhizomes. There's no mistaking them - they're orangey-red on the inside. So that kills the theory that the voles got to them.
Now, these rhizomes had no roots and no buds, but they were plump and moist - what gives with that?!
Eh, I replanted them - I already chalked them up as a loss so figure hey if they ever do grow again it'll be a nice surprise :0)
I sure hope my other drifts don't pull the magical disappearing act, I really do love me some bloodroot.
