A Perfect Pair

Love -in-a-mist and Shasta Daisy Posted by Hello

Love in a mist is soon going to be everywhere in the terraced rock garden.
Shasta Daisy bloomed first, but Love in a mist is a more dramatic spring annual.
I collect the seeds, which are in a papery horned seed capsule.
The seeds themselves are tiny black seeds and they scatter on their own.
This plant keeps giving of itself each and every year.
Too much water makes it spindly.
It is mixed in with rose campion, Shasta daisy, catnip, African daisy, and others.
It makes for a soft and comfortable look to the garden.

I found some Love-in-a-mist in my neighbors backyard, we didn't know if it was a weed or put there on purpose. Thanks for the pic! Now we know!
