Garden Whites Inspiration
Another American Native which the Europeans have figured out that it's significant before we wake up....... Found at a Box Store, (Lowe's,) but know it's happiest in it's native soils/environs. Am anxious to see if it blooms longer than the specie which grows here. "Prunella Summer Daze" (Prunella grandiflora X P. laciniata)
To plant this Autumn!! (2012)
Gomphrena globosa Strawberry Fields - 'Plants thrive in heat and drought and tolerate extreme humidity.' When they say thrive, they mean thrive. I sometimes forget to water the bed these are in, and it gets about 12 hours of full beating sun. And I'm in Texas. Under drought conditions. They bloom their hearts out all spring, summer, and fall, and come back the next year.
Gomphrena globosa "Strawberry Fields'. Had this last year, inter-planted with Salvia farinacea 'Victoria'. This one is an annual...the salvia is a short lived perennial for us, here. It was a knockout combo!!
