Bang for your buck

Bought two packs, one to direct sow and the other for the children to start in a small container. Unfortunately the direct sow batch produced nothing, although that was likely my fault as I am a novice. However, we got plenty of seedlings from the pots and I ended up transferring them to the garden, where they have held up very well through unpredictable late spring and early summer weather. Zone 7b.

Bees love it

Started the seeds indoors 4 years ago and those I planted have quickly spread and filled in the gaps between my plants. I have no other plant that attracts so many bees (and different types of bees- honey, bumble, those tiny hovering ones). Looks great in all seasons.
