When I look at the plants that I've received from family and friends I always think of them. If I visited a nursery with them and we picked the plant together I also remember it but if I ordered it from a catalogue or picked it up at a big box--not likely. My brother sent me a box of plants this week. The Scabiosa and Lily's of the Valley will go into the church garden and the grass in mine. I took cuttings this weekend of another PassAlong plant in my garden. It's a Coleus that grew in my Grandmothers, my Mothers, my Brother and Sisters gardens and now in mine for the last 10 or so years. I grow it in a large pot on the patio so I can think of them often. This is the honored plant.
The Lantana and Melampodium in the curb garden love this hot dry spot. The Lantana has interesting delicate flowers.
