Meet Komaki the Kirengeshoma

I’ve started giving my plants names.  I hope this doesn’t turn me into a crazy plant lady, but I like to think of them as little beings (because they are)…with distinct personalities that are highlighted best with a good and fitting name and personal introduction.

So, can I introduce you to Komaki – the Kirengeshoma palmata?  I named her after myself (at least the self that comes out when you take the ‘What is your Geisha Name quiz‘)  Komaki is apparently my Geisha name and I think it fits her perfectly.  Komaki is demure with her always nodding head and her pure but luminescent coloring is fantastically intriguing.  Komaki is only mildly happy in my garden — she loves the shade, but I think she would prefer a bit more water…I recently moved her to the bottom of the downspout…I’m hoping it makes her happier and doesn’t overwhelm her.

BTW — what’s you geisha name?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
