Out Clubbing

Last week, we made a short foray to pick up some spaghnum for the bog gardens we constructed last year, and it was great to see the native golden club, Orontium aquaticum already in flower. This fascinating aroid needs a bog with shallow water to survive. These plants were growing in very deep shade, but we’ve found them to perform quite well in up to a couple of hours of sun. Orontium is native from Massachusetts to East Texas.
