After reading this article, I thought, “What’s working in my yard?” I planted Tampa verbena by the mailbox, and it grew like crazy and looks really pretty. The butterfly garden in the backyard got taken over by weeds, so I cleared a small space there today, clipped some verbena stems, and pushed them into the dirt. I’m hoping they’ll grow as well there as they do in the front yard, and it will add another low maintenance garden to my yard.
Wow, Jennifer, this is a great example of adapting to your time and conditions, and using the plants to save time while adding beauty! Great job! Let me know how it goes with the transplant!
