I've mixed it in with another PW, "Silver Bush", Calocephalus brownii. With stunning stick like glowing silver foliage. You can see it to the left in the above photo.
This is a great time of year for gardeners to get a peek at the newest and the best, local growers sometimes sell off the trial plants, and if your timing is right you can find some amazing flowers. There are new coleus, and gazanias, phygellus, basils, and many many more popping up in garden centres. Sure they are only going to grow for a few more months, but being first on the block to get something no one else has yet, might just be worth it.
What are your favorites this year? And what are you looking forward to planting next year?
