A Cute Couple
So guess where I am? I’m in Denver, attending the Garden Bloggers Fling, that’s where. But I’m still going to do a quick post, because I am intensely dedicated. Or obsessive compulsive, one of the two.
Anyhow, last weekend Judy took some pictures of Golden Alexander (Zizia aurea) with Catmint ‘Six Hills Giant’ (Nepeta x faassenii). I think they make an attractive couple.
Golden Alexander started blooming at least a week before ‘Six Hills Giant’.
This combination possesses some attractive contrasts: yellow and blue, spikes and umbels, small grey-green leaves and larger emerald-green compound leaves. Both plants are popular with pollinators.
In theory, Nepeta is not as shade tolerant as Golden Alexander, but both these plants are doing just fine together in part sun.
That’s all for now.
