North American native plants are some of the easiest plants to use in the home garden. Typically little maintenance or feeding needs to be done for natives as long as they are planted in their preferred situation. Bowman’s Root is one such native plant. Once it is planted, little needs to be done. Native bees and other pollinators will magically appear when Bowman’s Root in bloom. The added bonus of red fall foliage make this a must have plant for any naturalized garden spot.

Bowman’s Root has a very open and free flowing shape. The blooms are light and airy, dancing on red stems through the summer. As the blooms fade the red stems stay around to support the dark brown seedheads. Deer and pest resistant. Pair Bowman’s Root with other woodland natives such as Penstemons, Blue Eyed Grass and Campion.

Bowman’s Root Care

Bowman’s Root prefers moist, humus rich soil that is well drained. Mulching on a regular basis with organic compost or leaves will help to boost soil moisture retention and fertility. A full sun to part shade place in the garden will encourage the most blooming. Supplemental irrigation must be provided in the first few years. Establishment can be a little difficult if Bowman’s Root is not properly watered early on.

Herbaceous perennials completely die back to the ground each fall, and shoot into full growth the following spring and summer. The best time to clear away the old foliage is early in the spring as the new growth starts. The old foliage will provide an extra layer of mulch and insulation for plants grown in the coldest of the hardiness zones. Fertilizing is not recommended.

Bowman’s Root Spacing

The mature height and width of Bowman’s Root is 2-3 feet. Spacing plants at 3 feet on center is recommended. Dividing every 3-4 years may be necessary to keep plants growing vigorously.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
