Today Oakland nursery started their annual "appreciation" sale - otherwise known as the "please buy our plants before they croak in the heat sale" . Everything is at least 20% off. I left with a Miscanthus 'Morning Light' to replace the dwarf white pine at the end of the driveway that some kid killed when they crashed their bike and landed on it breaking the main trunk ;) 2 african daisies and 1 Helenium Wyndley.
I have never grown Helenium before. Please tell me it's not as much of a thug as the Black eyed susans I ripped out this spring!
