What's Growin' On: 4/28/06

Isn't It Love-ly? Isn't It Won-der-ful? (Yes, I'm singing.)

Realization Of The Day:
I have no idea what this is. I bought it last fall at a garden center clearance sale for 50 cents and transplanted it into a bigger pot full of rich, composty soil--which it apparently loves. Somehow between then and now, its little ID tag has gone missing. All I know is that it's a perennial--and it's very pretty. And I have to figure out somewhere to put it.

Am working on salad growing post.


  1. it looks to be some sort of salvia

  2. I was going to guess Clary Sage (which, as Steven says, is a salvia), and I think that's a popular perineal?

  3. I'm looking forward to the salad post.

  4. The flower is known as blue verbain.

  5. Correction: Blue vervain

  6. Hi Jennie,
    Thanks! I never would have guess that considering the flowers are pink. I'm looking forward to finding out more about it. The good news is that it seems to like our crazy climate. : )

  7. After a lot of Googling, I do believe that jeph and steven are correct in identifying your mystery plant.


March 2013 update: My apologies for the inconvenience - I know word verification is a pain - but I've had to turn it on to help stop the ridiculous number of anonymous spam comments I've been getting every day. Thanks for your understanding.

Welcome to! Thanks so much for taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love to hear about what's going on in your own garden. I know, too, that other readers also delight in reading about your garden successes, failures, helpful tips, and lessons learned. Feel free to leave comments on older posts!

I try my best to answer all questions, but sometimes it takes me a few days to get to them. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your visits to my kitchen garden!
