What does this have to do with Cheech & Chong?
Is that verbena on a stick? I finally got that going in my garden this year. Lovely.
I don't harvest the dried out heads of my flowering plants because the marigolds love to feast on them.
This one will be easy. Winner receives seed packet for 2012 planting. A $5.00 retail value!
CyndiF for the genus! Species?
It looks like something off a wreath you'd get at a craft store.
Does it have anything to do with Cheech and Chong?
If this is not a spice (the way safron is a spice. And, this ain't safron). Why are you growing this?Is it cumin?
I always thought verbena tasted lemony.And, Chocolate & Zucchini has up a recipe ... where she takes the LEAVES from celery. Sticks the leaves in a 250-degree oven for an hour. When they come out she uses her fingers to turn them into 'flakes' ... to which she adds salt. And, says it's the best celery salt in the world.So she says don't throw away your celery leaves.
It is easy. It grows in my garden. Makes good dried flowers.Bonariensis
'scuse me:Verbena bonariensis
I've been BEGGING for months for you or anyone to tell me how to deal with porcelain berry. I'd take good tips (and I mean PERMANENTLY dealing with PB) in place of a seed packet!
The allium garlic you grew in the front hedge with the bigger decorative allium.
Oops,never mind, those were on single stalks...
Talk to me of verbena. Aster yellows has infected my border. Verbena is my only hope. Will I ever be able to grow perennials again? Do I want to? With the virus and most of the border destroyed by roofers this summer I've lost my gardening mojo. Sure the lilies were bright orange, but they didn't deserve to die.
Seed saver!We didn't mulch this year, and you can tell. Next Spring: Mulch Delivery!
Althouse, Have you grown this Verbena before?I've had it in my garden for over 10 years (butterflies love it), and only had to plant it once.It reseeds freely, to the point of being a bit of a nuisance. The seedlings pull out easily, but I still spend a great deal of time thinning them.In my zone 5 garden, some will actually perennialize.
There are over 200 species of Verbena. What that is a photo of is Verbena bonariensis.
Poppy seeds. I'll bring the opium pipe. Can I just get the whole five bucks in cash??
HT wins. Email me and I will see if I can help rid you of that troublesome porcelain berry.
