Okay, I'm looking at my landscaping (I use that word loosely) and thinking I couldn't keep a gnat alive in a cornfield. WTF?
HELP ME. I need to find something indiginous to the Midwest, something that can survive hot-buttered-squash heat in the summer, Popsicle cold in the winter, and the feeling of being draped in a washcloth all year round. Something that will need no extra watering, except for that which lo, cometh from the sky. I'm thinking three or four fat bushes. I'd like something that flowers, and smells pretty, but that WHICH REQUIRES NO WATERING. I'd like something that's comfortable being surrounded by much river rock, something without thorns, and something that can be planted in September or March before the rest of my yard takes over and I forget all about it.
Also! Something for my pots. Both the bushes and the pots in question are in ruthless, searing, windy, unprotected full sun. Questions?
Help me, people. I suck at suburbia.
Also? A new post at She Doesn't Get It. That's that blog I keep talking about but nobody reads. C'mon, now!
