    This is such an old fashioned flower. It self sows all over my neighborhood. The first time I met it, I kept it blooming in a pot so I could study it…so exotic. I had no idea how wild it is. It didn’t seem to mind. Almost as strong as a weed.

      It is old-fashioned and extremely hardy, doing well in stony ground and hot, dry areas.

      I live in an area where the Amish farm quite successfully and their flower beds are filled with a wide array of ‘old-fashioned plants. One I particularly am fond of is Scented Evening Stock, which closes its flowers during the day, but opens in the evening and exudes a sweet fragrance one can detect at a distance. Perhaps, some evening, I’ll take a photo.

    I love this. My mum is visiting me and both of us were in my garden today pottering about. Then in a pot which was ignored and unloved, she found a small seedling of these. She lovingly re potted it and it is now out my back for me to remember this lovely day we spent together. I have many of these growing in my garden but this one will be special. I read this post and smiled!
