Most of our Veratrum collection are currently in our 'pot ghetto' - a place where empty pots and a few plants are stashed away until we've figured out what to do to them. It's not usually an area you'd want to show people around but I'm sure most gardens of reasonable size have this sort of space allocated somewhere.
This 'pot ghetto' of ours will need some serious tackling in the near future for sure but I decided to start and do a bit today and that's when I spotted this, tucked right on the edge and on the corner looking...perfect!
As you can see it is racing ahead in growth from the other potted Veratrums. These plants are prone to slug and snail damage, and it's not exactly living in the best of spots which made me admire this plant even more that it looked pristine.
I had to take it out of there of course, I can't just leave a gorgeous looking plant like that there. I weeded the pot and placed it somewhere that we can appreciate its perfection while it lasts.
