Of all the new seeds I tried this year, this is my favorite.
This Hyacinth Bean is almost in complete shade and it is lovely. It has bloomed and bloomed and the purple seed heads are so shiny and pretty too. I will collect seed for next year. The foliage has been nice too, a deeper green with burgundy in it, which I love.
And here is my second favorite…..Moss Verbena (shown with Obedient Plant)
Wow, it has such pretty fern like foliage and wow, the blooms. Here you can see how well it blends with pinks and purples.
I think I will always grow this Verbena and not buy the annuals in pots each year. It has been an easy one and truly, the show is spectacular.
But I have to add, as so many gardeners dislike obedient plant and pink evening primrose….I love mine. Yes, they are super aggressive and spread like crazy. But I just yank them out, give them away….or have more plants for new beds.
And the color this time of year when so much is finished is a huge bonus.
