Gardeners' Notes:

I find this plant only grows in the gravel around my place and climbs up the fencing of the dog kennel. The soil is dense clay, however gravel was added to the property when it was developed. I put the kennel in and don't remember seeing this plant previous to that. Of our 2 ac., this is the only place it grows. I like the plant, it is so dainty.
