    Calopogon in bog?

    ahh, I got those too but they came back. This is the first year I've seen monarch this early. Normally I'd see them at the end of August. I found 7 eggs last week, now only 2 caterpillars surviving. I didnt bring them in this time. May be I should :(

    Calopogon in bog?

    Thanks! May be I should be on the carnivorous plant society... hm... never thought of that! If it's a companion plants to pitcher plant I think it might not do well in the pond bog.

    Calopogon in bog?

    Haha Addy, I was just joking :) Who knows how it ended up there! I dont have much space for my bog and this one was growing through every thing and it blocked my water flow a bunch of times too. It covered other plants so it was hard for other plants to grow so I decided to take it out. It...

    Thank you JB! It's been a long time :) Lobelia is so pretty! I have a feeling that I might have something similar but last year I didnt get to see the flower of my plants much as the invasive one took over. Even worse than mint, that one, dont remember what its called though. Probably got it...

    Calopogon in bog?

    Hi all, I've been gone for a long time busy with my chickens and ducks :) I pond is doing well and my bog is great! I decided to take out a lot of plants that took over the bog and leave just those that's not too aggressive. That leave a lot of space to add more plants! :love: I've come across...

    Swamp Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) -- no flowers

    hmm, that's a good info about the water depth. Mine, the gravel in the bog flush with the water level so I'll have to say about only half to 1 inch for mine and get full sun all day. Waiting for picture from M.

    Swamp Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) -- no flowers

    I planted one in my bog too. The first year it was big and flower nicely, this is the second year, they are smaller and flowers but not as much as the first year. May be they don't like to be in the water all the time? I don't know.
