Dragon's head and more
In the sales areas, I don't hold back. New to me: dragon's head (Dracocephalum grandiflorum). It grows in partial shade with intense blue flowers. The Flower Factory sells 10 types of dragon's head. Really, I'm restrained getting only one. The price for my signature plant, 'Rozanne' geranium (the Perennial Plant Association's 2008 plant of the year) is excellent: only $7.50 for a 4-inch pot. I've seen them sell for twice the price. I'd better get two.
I want more (that's me, pictured at left). I buy more -- oh, so much more -- but at some point, I stop. Must pace myself.
