Sea holly

DSCN0642This is an extraordinary perennial, with a look and color I’ve rarely seen. This one (with orange calendula in the background) I started from seed two years ago, and planted it in the vegetable garden (everything goes in my veggie garden). The first year it did nothing, as with most perennials, but this year that baby stood up and demanded notice.

Grow from seeds, people. Elsewhere this book will show you how. Just don’t be afraid — of that or anything. Ever.
