Aethionema schistosum - Fragrrant Persian Stonecress
Not quite in full bloom.
This particular plant was purchased 3 seasons ago from High Country Gardens in a moment of lustful greed for horticultural pleasure. I was looking to fulfill the fragrant sense of the five senses, and the "dainty" pink blooms would fit the color combination's I was looking for at the time (pink and gray). Three years later after moving this plant 3 times I believe it has found its home, in the corner infernal bed. That would be the hottest and driest place in the garden. However to be able to sense the fragrance I had to get on my hands and knees to get even a small whiff of fragrance. So the plant will not reach the "top shelf" area of the garden, the front entry way. I planted the stonecress with Sedum 'Blue Spruce' and found that the two were very similar in texture and foliage color. Join Carol @ May Dream Gardens for her Garden Bloggers Bloom Day celebration.
