This was my first year with Wild Clary. It was quite small, 4-6" tops, but I was able to harvest a few seeds, so I will try again next year, and put it in a different location.

I didn't really even see it until I was doing Fall clean-up. Maybe all the other plants just blocked it out. Hopefully it will do better next year.

Sure is pretty though.
