That is so neat. There are so many great plants that you come up with that my wish list keeps getting longer and longer. :)

Ditto what mollymistsmith said- I so want to come and raid your garden. LOL!

(by the way, the brugs you sent me are doing great so far!) :)

What a wonderful looking plant! Love it! Do the bees and hummers like it also? I may need to try a couple of them next year.
I just read that they do, guess I should read before I ask...Huh! LOL

Thanks everybody. It is a real cool plant and I'm extra proud of this one because I started it from seed quite a few years ago.

Pony, you are welcome to come and raid my gardens any time. I share and I'm over run in plants here but still keep getting more. LOL Glad the brugs are doing well for you. :-)

GardenGuyKin, It does seem to be very popular with the bees and hummers. One of the best things about this plant is I've never noticed any pest problems with it. Not even slugs and snails and they seem to like almost everything. That really makes it a winner here. :-)

I would love to visit your garden, raiding or not. :) You never know- maybe in the spring I'll be up for a little road trip. You're what, 2 hours from me? I could bring you some Tagro. :D

Sounds like fun. I'll dmail you my cell number so you can make sure I'll be home when you take your road trip.
