Stacked Plants – Not Recommended, but Accidents Happen

 I thought this Blackfoot Daisy had died when it went dormant for the winter.  I planted other flowers on top of it, including this verbena.  The next spring, the daisy woke up determined to grow.  It grew sideways out of the mesh that is attached to the side of the raised beds.  

I love and seek out plants that stubbornly march on, performing their flowering duties!  I call those plants “Marines” for their perseverence and ability to overcome all obstacles.

(Sorry, I couldn’t find an online source for blackfoot daisy.  They are sold widely in Texas stores and in some of the surrounding states because they are so drought-tolerant.)
