Wednesday Vignette: Thank you, Lavender Who Came With The House

I love this plant.  Especially this time of year, because it makes all the other things look fantastic.


Rhus typhina, the Tiger Eyes one.


Just an artichoke. Lower right is Perovskia atriplicifolia.


Miscanthus purpurascens.

This is one of a handful of plants I am really happy to have inherited with this house.  It reminds me that I don’t need to worry all that much about where I plant things, making sure this plant looks smashing next to that plant, and so on, because I can easily find great combinations quite accidentally, with no help at all from any sense of garden design. It’s something I need to keep in mind this week, since I have a lot of plants to get into the ground!

I love the idea of Wednesday Vignettes and I’ll try to do them regularly.  Thank you Anna at Flutter & Hum.
