Blue Porterweed


Is blue porterweed something you should blog about?  The insulting "weed" in the name implies that it's a vigorous self seeder and that's true, but oh, how beautiful is the blue.  When it turns cold and the blue spires blacken, I'll rip them all out and welcome them again in the spring. Unlike beach sunflower, they don't leave behind a barren patch beneath them, reminiscent of a bombed-out crater, so why not let them have their day?
