Farmer MacGregor scored large when he said he was going to the store for some Fritos or something and returned with Valentine’s bouquets. There’s loads of red and white roses. One accent flower caught my interest.Statice (Limonium sinuatum) – It’s that purple straw-like flower. I would like to get some seeds and try growing some. They seem perfect for zone 8-9’s hot, dry summers. We’re expecting a very dry summer so this might be a great time to try.
Has anyone tried these in the San Joaquin Valley? Is planting from seed viable or should I consider seedlings/plants from a nursery?
Enjoy Valentine’s Day in the garden.
