    The bright colors of perennials & annuals are gorgeous in summer, but some days I prefer the subtler shades of rich green. So healthy & fresh.

    Netty, that is 'Gold Standard'. It is relatively slow growing, but very healthy. I think I have already divided a small piece of it because I want to spread it around. The plant you see is about 14" across & maybe 4 years old.

    Green is my least favorite color... I don't own one piece of clothing that is green and I won't have anything in my home painted that color.... HOWEVER.... I totally love to see pretty lush greenery outdoors. Your's is particularly gorgeous!
