Pic of the Day--May

Postby Hank Zumach » Jul 30, 2007 9:53 am

Hi All--May is one of those plants that is probably best used as background for other plants. Its appearance does not draw attention to itself but it does have nice coloring that blends in with many garden colors. We have had the plant since 2002, growing in a spot that gets a couple of hours of afternoon sun. Its size has slowly and steadily increased from 12x6 to 17x5, 22x6, 25x10, 31x11, and 35x12. The registration size is 22x7.
