This dead-looking queens crown originally came from my Mom's flowerbed . . . my paternal Grandma also had it growing on her garden fence . . . at the height of their season, these little parchment blooms were pink . . . and were a favorite hang-out for honeybees . . . it also attracts butterflies and hummingbirds . . . it dies back every winter . . . and then comes back up from the roots . . .
Wonderful in it's parchment state but I bet beautiful in bloom. I would like to plant some plants that attract butterflies...a trip to the nursery is in order soon.
