I wrote earlier this month about the extreme cold temperatures that we had been dealing with. Well, we are now experiencing warmer then normal temperatures with highs hitting about 78 degrees F. While I do love this weather, I am NOT liking how my allergies have flared up. I am writing this with swollen, itchy and watery eyes……definitely not a pretty sight. So, I will stay indoors, hoping that my allergy medication decides to kick in sometime soon 😉
On another note, I have enjoyed sharing with you some of the wonderful plants that are ‘lesser-known’ in the garden.
Basically, lesser-known plants are those that are underused in the garden. I think the reason is, is that most people are so used to using the more common landscape plants, that they do not know what other alternatives are out there.
So, if you are tired of your front landscape, looking like everyone else, then you should definitely try out some of these plants in your landscape. So far, we have showcased Valentine, Chaparral Sage and Coral Fountain.
Today’s star is one that I have used quite a bit in the past 10 years. Although I have seen it used in commercial plantings, it is still not seen too often in residential landscapes, which is a shame.
Angelita Daisies are not all that impressive when viewed in their containers, but as soon as they are planted and their roots have a chance to grow, you will be rewarded with a showy display of yellow flowers.
