This plant is blooming all over our yard right now. We have several different colors. I always love a plant that can’t get too much hot, dry and sunny – three things we have in great abundance here (did I mention that it can also thrive in poor soil?).
I was out in the backyard today watching Leo and feeling completely overwhelmed (but in a good way) about the approaching spring. Building on last year’s banner tomato year, both as still life material and on the table, I think it’s just about time to get some in the ground. There’s still a slight chance of a couple of nights close to freezing, but I think I can protect my plants well enough.
