Attack of the Killer Bleeding Heart!
My neighbour, Raylene has been busy digging up and dividing perennials for an upcoming plant sale.. plus, she needs to move several of her perennial borders, to allow a backhoe to do some needed work on her septic field (boo hoo)..
We are self-proclaimed 'plant nerds', so when she was digging up some bleeding hearts on Friday afternoon, she ran over to show me the HUGE root that came from one well-established plant.. the root was over 2-feet long and had about an 8-inch circumference - crazy huge! She divided it into a bunch of smaller pieces, but this root was a casualty of the battle..
