As some of you know, Babs, who writes Off The Wall Arts, sent me these very cool seeds earlier this year. I planted them in this pot and protected the young plants from the deer who like to visit me. Right now, this is what these lovely plants look like. Babs posted some photos on her blog and mine is not looking as good as hers, but maybe it is the difference in our climates. Most likely it is the difference in the gardeners, though.
As you can see, this one is sending out shoots, so I am hopeful for those lovely purple flowers and purple seed pods. Don't you like the way this spirals?
Do you think this is a flower bud? Maybe it is more leaves. I don't know.
But I love these leaves...look at the great color combination. I am not a gardener, but I can say these seeds have pleasantly surprised with at least the foliage of these really cool seeds. Thanks so much Babs!
