I didn't know what to expect when I ordered Cupid Culver's Root, but I am now a big fan of this less-known perennial. It is a star in my zone 7b north Georgia garden. (I also saw it growing equally well at the Alaska Botanical Garden!) The bare root plants I received from Holland Bulbs were healthy, and I planted them right away when I received them in March. The first season they grew about 18 inches tall and had nice blooms, but I was really blown away in the second season, when they grew to almost 4-feet tall and were covered with multiple bloom spikes each. Visitors to my garden would stand spell-bound, watching the pollinators come and go from the blossoms. Along with the blossoms, which last for several weeks mid-summer, the slar-shaped leaves add interesting texture throughout the season.
