Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Limestonelin On Sep 2, 2013, Limestonelin from SPRING BRANCH, TX wrote:

I have recently added both Augusta and Henry to my butterfly garden and they are doing well. The soil is crummy (I am working on that). They are in blazing sun. I do water them. They seem to be putting out underground runners and multiplying. Since "more is better" for me I am very happy with them. The specie plant is "tough as nails" and these cultivars look promising.
