    • I purchased three 6” pots of Little goldsturm in May of 2020. It was my intention due to their short height, to plant them in front of a section of hydrangea bobo that I have creating a hedge. I laid the pots where I intended them for planting and was waiting for the kids to finish their school day in order to put them in the landscape. Within three hours the pots were demolished by rabbits in our yard. - I did not know that these are a favorite lunch for wild rabbits. When I say they ate these plants down the ground with no leaves, it is not an exaggeration. There was only an inch of naked stem left in each sorry pot. Undeterred, I took the now barren looking pots and placed them on sunny out the way area of railing on our deck and forgot about them. For an entire year I did exactly nothing to them other than wonder what the spring would bring. The foliage is now lusher than when I bought them and the plants are looking picture perfect. I’ll deliver them to my parents home next week and plant them in a spot less likely to be frequented by rabbits. I know they will do swimmingly. It’s rare that I’ve had a plant undergo so much damage, let alone so quickly. The recovery has been spectacular, especially given the utter neglect these beauties were shown. While these plants are not ideal for my landscape, the were chosen for their tidy looking growth habit and shorter front of border potential. For such a petite goldsturm, in the right sunny spot, these will really delight and provide abundant flowers suitable for cutting, with almost no maintenance. A real win, if you have a rabbit-free yard.
