When I returned from a week of helping my son and his family move from Annapolis, Maryland, to Savannah, Georgia, I found my perennial pink verbena in full bloom. I’ve had this flower in my garden before, but it’s been a while.
When I saw it at Lowe’s this spring with the words “Deer Resistant” stamped on the tag, I was quick to snatch some up. There are so many things that I can’t grow because the deer feed in my yard every night. They eat the day lilies to the ground before they ever produce any blooms. Knock out roses, hydrangeas of all varieties, hostas and azaleas are all favorites of the deer. And the poor pansies get pulled up roots and all just as quickly as they’re planted.
A couple of weeks after I planted the verbena I went out one morning to find all of the blossoms snipped off. I was soooooooo disappointed. Now they’re blooming profusely. It will be interesting to see how long the blooms last.
Happy Pink Saturday to one and all. Family obligations have prevented me from posting for a while, so it’s nice to be back. Please head over to Beverly’s at How Sweet the Sound to see what else is in the PINK.
