I do not know which of these is appropriate...
I feel bad about all that muck and your shoes, but maybe if there was a hidden camera it might have been funny to see.
I do not understand it either. I am wondering if the bog plants' roots have cooler temperatures. Does the water come from underground?
My container daylilies can actually handle water in the summer better. They also go less dormant. I read that when the roots panick they do not send the correct amount of water to the leaves. The plant systems overall do not always perform their normal routine functions.
That is interesting that your bog plants have tell tale root systems. So probably by looking at your plants roots alone you could identify where it was dug from. My containers are pretty huge...those daylilies have different root systems, too.
My daylily loss this last February did not make sense either. I had a couple of containers no losses...exact same container next to it total loss...exact same container next to that a 75% percent loss.
With freezing and that type of loss, you would expect a little 8 inch pot with a fan to be a frozen loss. Nope it made it. My big losses made no sense, except for big loss of seedlings.
Actually I could say almost all of my least favorites made it...the ones I was getting ready to get rid of. Pretty much all my favorites died.
The revenge of the daylilies...who are you to pick and choose amongst us. When the new plants are here, I will not let them know who my favorites are ever again.
May blessings be in an overabundance this week!
