I want to share this cool plant that I found at Walmart the other day. No, I couldn't resist. And yes, I am that gardener the 'experts' write about...the person that has to have one of everything. Sorry, but I'll work it into my shade gardens and you'll hardly notice it's all alone. This plant has been around a long time, but as we know, plants fall in and out of favor. I love that it looks like it's name...Tractor Seat! The plant tag states that it can take 4-8 hours of sun daily, but others that grow it say it can only take a sprinkling of sun.
Farfugium japonicum, Tractor Seat
Hence the name, but if you're very young, you may not see the likeness.
Other than Knockout roses, there's not much blooming here. This rose has suffered a little from the cold, but she's trying.
'Valentine's Day' Rose
Turk's Cap still has a few blooms.
My time right now is being spent tidying up flower beds, and starting seedlings. I sowed lots of Purple Coneflower, Sweet Peas, and 'Lady in Red' Scarlet Sage', as well as others. Also getting a head start on tomatoes and 'Parris Island' Romaine.
Thanks to all of you for visiting.
