In antiquity it was known and used for staunching the flow of blood from wounds. It is drought tolerant and PROLIFIC. Aggressive, even, I'd say.
It's also lovely and I found 8 different varieties in the garden here at Cicada Cottage. It is a "cottagey" flower.
In other news, my parents moved in last night. They slept with the window open in the guest suite and said it smelled good. Today, I think I'll take them to the Gugelhupf Bakery and then to Target of course.
What fun to have extra bodies in the house (bigger bodies that don't whine or pee in their bed).
