Chocolate Ruffles Heuchera flowers. MMmmmmm. . . . Doesn't the name alone make you want to eat them? These are out playing in my yard at this very moment, unsupervised.
Early in the summer, I think of the Russian Sage as being weeds and consider pulling them out and tossing them. They grace an area next to our garbage can! And then they suddently stretch out, grow a little larger than the year before and redeem themselves with these fairfly long-lasting blossoms that will probably hang around until the first sign of snow. With absolutely no tender loving care or attention whatsoever. They're kind of the codependent cinderellas of the garden.
