    I got a few of these last year and the poor things stayed in those little pots (under sprinklers, but still!) in the NC heat for months before I finally got them in the ground in early July. I planted them in a deep, rich bed that I had mixed ample forest duff into in partial sun that became almost full shade once the larger perennials around them filled-out (hardy hibiscus, Joe pye, etc.). I actually kind of forgot about them for a little while and then…they flowered and were so darned pretty that I trimmed-back some of the more rambunctious perennials around them to admire them more easily! I didn’t even notice the scent until the late autumn when I went to collect seeds and was gifted with the sweet, refreshing lemon scent!

    Incidentally, we took a trip to Boone, NC (in the mountains) in August and there were huge stands of stoneroot in full flower in the mountain forests (along with purple stem angelica which was long done flowering here in the piedmont, but in her full glory up there, tons of early goldenrod, black cohosh, etc.). It was a sight to behold! This is one I’ll definitely be strewing liberally throughout my dappled and woodland-edge garden beds!!
