It's all about the journey--growing plants that speak to me. Traveling to find them is half the fun.
Almost missed it...
It almost slipped past me. It's small, white, and subtle--advantages in the spring, but during mosquito season, a recipe for neglect. I like Astrantia, and have several cultivars ranging in color from deep red to white, as in 'Shaggy'. They seem to like my partially-shaded gardens, enjoying similar conditions as Anemone japonica.
