What are the pros? GORGEOUS and good smelling
What are the cons? late to come up?
I planted a variety of things from seed this year, and most everything had come up and was blooming when this creepy little fellow emerged. I almost pulled it up, but I noticed that there were a few more like it in a pattern more like a row, so I let it grow. The taller it grew, the more beautiful it became, and I thought I had planted some kind of green flower, because I WOULD NOT for the life of me remember what I'd planted in that space! Once the flower began turning purple, I was just FLOORED. I ran back through all of my empty packages and finally found one with a picture that matched--so I HAD planted it on purpose! Even better--there were still some more seeds in it for NEXT year! It was a late and slow bloomer, but it has been a lovely delayed treat for the bees as some of the earlier blooms have begun falling back. I am hoping to have enough of them to add to my tea cabinet this fall, and will definitely be planting this one for the forseeable future.
