I love my perennial, fast growing scrub I planted in a large green container outside my family room window on my deck. It’s a Plumbago Auriculata White Cape Leadwort “white” flower with dark green foliage. The large clusters of white flowers bloom almost all year and are a great decorative accent on my deck. 

They make me smile. I love catching a glimpse of them from the family room window as I walk into the kitchen or when I’m on the deck.

Hi Dorie,
The world IS a garden.  As summer ends, I am reminded there is beauty in every season.

Dorie flowers and plants make everything look better, and perennials are great because you don't have to replant them year after year.

I'm with you, Dorie. We need special treasures, such as your Plumbago, to bring us joy throughout the day. I know that you smile when you see them and what a good feeling that is.

What a wonderful splash of joy that brings. I love white flowers, they brighten the area up all around them, especially in the evening, and it is great that it flowers so long as well. We will be planting a garden in our new home, this might need to make an appearance.
