Okay, now for real, this one was a challenge for me. So I went way back in time and snatched up some pictures of plants I had in my garden (some remain after I had to have a tree removed, but I guess we’ll really see come springtime). I like to think the Silver Mound, which is a soft, silky, and fluffy Artemisia I’ve been in love with for some time now, fits the challenge well enough, at least depending on the lighting. Silver Mounds or Artemisia schmidtiana, a.k.a. Wormwood, are deer, drought, and pest resistant. They grow in a mounding style which is just what it sounds like. They make great foliage plants with their silvery blue-green color.
The first plant is Allium giganteum, a member of the Onion family with fabulous flowers. These plants grow over 24 inches with fist size purple flowers on top. In the future I’ll share more about both of these plants including pictures of the Allium. For now here’s my photo challenge entries!
