i have just gathered this beauty TODAY!
and only because my hubby complained that it was hard to mow around.
so i thought i'd bring it in the house when i realized HE had actually MOWED it DOWN.
it was my fault...i mentioned the other day that i rarely stake my plants.
i'm too lazy and quite frankly, you never see stakes holding plants up "in nature".
most times i don't like how they look.
the hard part is remembering to plant it in the spring, knowing that it's going to be good. really good when fall comes.
it can also be hard to find, as nurseries tend to sell flowers that are in bloom for instant gratification. and these babies don't bloom until it cools off. as does the equally stunning Pineapple sage growing in the background there.
in the spring these plants, well ,they just don't show well. but in the fall...
come to mama!
although, red is not my favorite color...but the hummingbirds...well they LOVE IT and are still visiting this baby as they have been migrating through.
i know, cause i hold on to stuff.
guess i'll keep the hubby too.
somebody has to mow the lawn.
