Common Name Bowman's Root Variety  
Regional Names Indian Physic
Botanical Name Porteranthus syn. Gillenia stipulatus
Description This perennial long lived native has clusters of white flowers that have 5" long narrow petals in a star burst arrangement. The flowers are borne in a abundance in Mid-May through out June and measure 1" across. The leaves have double serration giving this species a ferny/feathery look each spring as it appears from its winter dormancy. It prefers well-drained rich soils but will grow anywhere well drained in full sun to full shade. It is very easy to grow with little care and reaches at maturity 3'High x 3'Wide. To this day I still do not understand why gardeners do not appreciate this native species beauty, drought tolerance and ease of culture.
