As some of you may have read in Patricia’s last post I recently stumbled upon a treasure trove of Echium candicans at Garden Fever. I was just walking along admiring the flowers and other offerings when bam! I’m suddenly confronted with beautiful variegation, what’s a gardener to do?
But the thing is I wasn’t going to plant them this year. I’d already made up my mind I wasn’t and had purchased something else to go in the spot usually reserved for a flashy, fast growing, tender plant. So what was I doing picking them up and putting them in my cart???
‘Death Star’ — I’ve never seen them before…and with that green-on-green foliage I adore.
So this where you comment and make me feel better (please!). I’m not alone right? You would have done the same thing right? Right?
