Snowflake or Harmony or Vaughn's Lillie

gaw1(5/6 Lake Tahoe Sierra NV Mtns)September 22, 2009

Ok, I've read all the posts but still undecided. Ideally I want a deep, green leafed, OH to serve as a specimen plant. Mostly shade but some dappled sun. About fifteen feet away will be an Annabelle. IÂm trying to decide between a Snowflake, Harmony, or VaughnÂs Lillie.

I am concerned about winter dieback and lack of full sun. Perhaps OH is just a waste of time. In the winter we get in the single digits. Although, I suspect wind chill may get us down into the negatives. I really donÂt want to winter protect a large plant with burlap. I could put the Annabelle in its spot but thought it might be nice to have two specimen plants.

Any advice?

The blooms on Harmony and VL are somewhat similar but VL is more compact so I would choose between those two depending on what size you prefer. Of the three blooms, I prefer the doubles on Snowflake. OH is advertised as hardy in your zone. Make sure the soil drains very well.
