Early Arrival

Organic success immediately...

This is one of the first bits of color each year in my garden. One of the keys to organic gardening success is choosing the right plants for your yard. Everything should be considered from sun, to moisture, to soil condition and traffic. Don't set yourself and your plant up for failure by trying to make a plant grow where the conditions do not favor its needs.

This particular plant is one of my personal favorites. It is tough as nails, has a delightful leaf of extraordinary texture and the bloom as you can see has the beauty of simplicity. It is called "Brunnera Macrophylla" and it is a hardy perennial which means it comes back every year, requires no special treatment from me to do so and reseeds itself, popping up in the most surprising spots to delight the senses.
