FABULOUS FOLIAGE & FRAGRANCE FOR FALL: I’ve been contemplating what to plant in front of this Punica granatum ‘Nana’ (dwarf pomegranate). The space has poor soil and gets a lot of sun. I’m gonna try ‘Meerlo’ lavender, which I’m super excited about because of the bright, beautiful variegated foliage and wonderful fragrance. Plus I love the contrast it provides. Plus, plus, I think it’s great to combine edible ornamentals. I’m hoping the lavender will stay lovely through the colder months when the pomegranate sheds its leaves. Stay tuned.
