Cultivar Notes - 'Bowman's Root'
Also known as Indian Physic or American Ipecac, Bowman's Root is an easy-to-grow native for bright shade or partial sun and it tolerates tree root competition well as long at it has a nice layer organic mulch. Bowman's Root is lovely in a mass planting where its lacy white flowers on wiry red stems can shimmer in a light breeze. It makes a nice filler - think Gaura for shade! A compact rounded plant is topped in late spring with ethereal white flowers growing in a few loose terminal panicles, with red petioles and mahogany stems. Clean, disease-free foliage often turns deep bronzy red in fall and contrasts beautifully with the more typical oranges and yellows in the perennial border. Interesting form and unique seed heads persist into winter. Great for cut flowers!
