Flower for the Day Verbena 7-9-15


Verbena (vervain) is one of my favorites in the gnome garden. It
grows on four foot stalks and blooms for months.

 




 



In a short story, An Odor of Verbena, William Faulkner described 
it symbolically as "the only scent that can be smelled above the 
scent of horses and courage".
