There's not a whole lot to recommend my north side garden. I had plenty of plans for it, but ended up neglecting it terribly until recently. After an inspirational primer on pruning fruit trees that I took at Armstrong Nursery, the established fruit trees have all taken a severe cut. Though following pruning guidelines, I still have regrets that I've done too much. We shall see.
In the mean time I can enjoy some other parts of the yard. Under the trees are a few natives and this one was one of the most pleasing in early February.
It has a marvelous scent, seems to thrive on the neglect that I'm giving it, and if you click the link for more you'll see some of its beautiful blooms.
Normally, I could look back in my blog to find the name, but I suspect that my blogging frequency has been so low that I didn't note this purchase. By memory and a little bit of searching this is Lepechinia fragrans (Pitcher Sage).
