June Plant of the Month

Some plants are a mere ‘flash in the pan’, appearing at nurseries for a season only to vanish from shelfs and catalogues, never to be seen again. Other plants are perennial favorites, relished not only by us and our parents, but also by our grandparents and their parents before them!
