Favorite Plant Today

Gaura does extremely well here in Winston-Salem. It's tall, blooms all summer, stands up to drought. Looking for pure white, I found 'So White' at the Farmstand on Peace Haven Rd., one of the best small nurseries I have found here in WS. Since I want to use lots of white in the backyard garden so we can enjoy in the evenings, I am planting these in several places around the border along with white Annabelle Hydrangea (which the rabbits ate last year, but so far my Deer Off is working), white vincas, etc. Another white plant that does extremely well in the drought and heat here is the Shasta Daisy, so I'm going to move some of those from other places into the back.
