I would not be without Verbena bonariensis in my garden. It’s an annual, but it attracts birds, butterflies, and hummingbirds...and bees.
There is something very satisfying about seeing second-generation plants from self-sown seeds!
Sometimes plants are given names that identify them with their geographical origin.
This plant looks a bit like a stick figure with arms and a small mop of lavender blooms on top, mimicking hair.
