"The sprites placed their crown on my head. I watched as their old queen turned into cherry blossom petals and was whisked away into the wind. Since the spites didn't speak I'm sure they were saying their goodbyes as their queen of the past blew away and was born again through a new tree"
Verbena bonariensis (aka the plant with these gorgeous purple blooms) is ok for bumblebees, but really comes into its own when it comes to butterflies and hummingbird hawkmoths. It self seeds well and you can take cuttings in the autumn so it's the plant that keeps on giving! #homesfornature
