You can't resist the price and surely there is some space in your garden that is crying out for company .. thus the double edged sword of temptation .. you just have to buy the plant and figure out the rest when you get back home and stand looking at your garden with a totally blank expression , thinking where oh where are you going to live dear on sale plant of mine ?
That is what happened with "Polemonium reptans" Stairway to Heaven" .. Jacob's Ladder ;-)
I thought the variegation would be perfect in the shadier part of the garden and I didn't even think of the flowers at the time .. just the foliage was enough to nudge me into buying it.
So .. what happens when you combine it with Black Lace Sambucus and ....
Artemisia ludoviciana "Valerie Finnis" .. now isn't that a mouthful ? and she isn't even supposed to be in the shade .. I have trapped her there and I am sure she will have a temper tantrum some day and hold her breath until .. I can't even think about it !
They are gorgeous together .. whether they are right for each other is another story but in the mean time .. I will admire them happily : )
I bought an "earth globe" a gazing ball that has a special coating to absorb light and "glow" for a few hours at night .. snail liked the deep brilliant blue of it all and decided to keep it company ..
I love that sapphire ? like blue and it really perks up the interest factor when faced with so many pots to water ? .. You need some inspiration or is it motivation to water all of the kids on the deck .. that you were supposed to cut back on this year ? Go figure .. I do even more ? DUH ??
