Here's another view of the flower. Any idea as to what it is?
SOLVED: Purple flower - closer up
Was all the fashion here a few years ago to plant this at the front of a border so you looked through it at the plants further back.
The bees and butterflies love it (so do I)
I like where you have it planted against the fence. It will reseed itself in the most peculiar places.
Smilin, I had to look up how to spell the last part of the name, lol. I grew this a few years ago, it reseeds everywhere.
What's the best way to collect seeds? I would love to take some up to my mom for one of her hills that she's letting go "back to nature". They're tired of mowing so much.
When they turn brown, you can just rub them off into your hand. They are elongated and sort of brownish in color. You should have tons of them! They do like a bit of a cold period to sprout, so sow them after you collect them or stick them in the fridge with a damp paper towel before you do.
They seem to flower forever. Guess I'll just have to keep an eye on it.
As soon as I figure out that part, I'll save some for you. :)
