Very cheery entry SJ. I bet the kids will really like seeing their pictures up there. maybe they would enjoy making a collage of themselves.

Maria, one of the (negative) comments on your DG link notes that the Mountain Fleece is related to Japanese Knotweed (which is considered invasive). I have knotweed (and love it) but not necessarily on purpose. It came with the house, was growing on the shady side. When I put in a patio, the guy that did the grading pulled it all out because he filled and graded that area. I was rather disappointed. A year later, after several feet of clay and a layer of sand (with fixative in it) were topped with a layer of brick, it poked its little heads back through.

I really like it though because it does not disrupt the patio on the nortwest corner like that but adds privacy (in fact a neighbor comes and gets some for her own yard for that reason) in a shady area where other plants would not thrive and gets lovely long lacey fronds of small white blooms each fall.

When I look closely at yours, they do look as though they could be related, I will have to read more about it. The spot I had targeted is mostly sunny but it sounds like it would do well in shade. I have so much more of that! What do you think?

Anna, Your cerus are wonderful! I learn something here everyday!
