Achellia 'Moonshine' has stepped up to the plate . It has cool silver foliage, yellow flowers (love yellow flowers) attracts beneficials and has a really long bloom season. I've put them all over the place.
Salvia 'May Night' ..it's only fault is the place of honor on the snail menu.
Some repeated elements are accidental...has anyone ever actually had to buy Borage ?
I was warned about Stipa, but I find it really easy to pluck out the unwanted seedlings, and leave a few in strategic locations.
On the other hand, there are times I wish I had never planted this robust Geranium sanguineum. I've gone from modest pulling-up , to hoiking big shovel-fulls into the yard waste. But I must admit, the plentiful magenta blooms are welcome in the spring garden.
