Lavender Persuasion

I find, in the garden, I prefer plants that aren't too needy. No codependent botanical relationships, please! I need lovelies that can root themselves, stand a little neglect, and still smile at me sweetly when I remember to pay them some due attention.

Top on the list? Lavender. Hardy, gorgeous, refined yet not stuffy. Give 'em a little prune each year and they hardly ask for more. Any perennials you find yourself befriending time and time again?


  1. I defiantly love Shasta Daises. They open in the sun and close in the shade. Makes me take in the time of day more.

  2. I LOVE lavender! It looks good, smells good, and is delightfully low maintenance. Lovely, lovely choice.
