I did all of my Black Friday shopping yesterday from the computer, so I had time for some gardening. I had found at Home Depot on Wednesday two plants that I am delighted to add to the garden.
The first is Lavender Anouk with beautiful silver foliage, deep purple flowers, and lavender bracts. It has a wonderful scent, is drought tolerant, and will stand up to the hottest of summers.
|Agave Lopantha Quadricolor|
My second find was Agave Lopantha Quadricolor. I love agave and am thrilled to be in a zone where I can grow them. This one stays small - only 18" in diameter and has the most beautiful variegation - dark green to pale yellow green down the center of each leaf.
Did everyone have successful Black Friday shopping experiences? Of course, the majority of Christmas shopping is being done online this year - it sure beats dealing with parking and crowds.
