Sorbaria potted up and placed in the border.

Sorbaria potted up and placed in the border. (Sorbaria sorbifolia)

Gifted to me by a patient recently. I decided to plant it in a pot, I was a little worried about the ? Suckering habit. Seems ok at the moment in the pot.

Love these, and suckering not necessarily a problem - if it happens, it’s easy to move the ‘baby’ or give it away!

I have one in my front garden, but no suckering!
But if it does, you will get one free plant!

I like this, too. Pretty leaf formation.

Thank you ladies, I appreciate your feedback. I may give this some further thought now! Plus free plants, what’s not to like there !!

Kate, I've had mine for about 4 years and noticed one small suckering plantlet a couple of weeks ago ... easily removed!

Thank you, Shirley! That’s great to hear. I do think I’ll plant it out now. 👍

Lovely plants Kate but they do tend to push up suckers. Mine's in a large porcelain pot and does very well. It's flowering at the moment. Hope it does well for you.

Ours has never suckered in over ten years!

Thanks all, I’m not sure what to do now 🤔

Plant it Kate and see what happens.
