Flower for the Day Verbena 8-9-17



This is my current all-time favorite. Verbena is a very old plant.It has been associated with 
divine supernatural forces.In ancient Egypt it was called "tears of isis".In ancient Greece it was
dedicated to Eos Erigineia, goddess of the dawn.
I like how it swings on a long stalk in the wind and sends it volunteers throughout the garden.
