On Saturday the 14, I went to the semi-annual Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center Plant Sale.
I also became a member...I haven't told my husband yet...shhh...
But! The reason why I became a member is because of the reciprocal benefits at other botanical gardens - specifically those in Florida and Arizona (the two locations where I'm hoping to go to on vacation this year). Of course, it doesn't hurt that it also meant that I got my entry fee back ($9) and also got 3 free 4" pots (again, $9).
I did see that the Austin chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas was selling some yellow red yucca. And even though I have no place to put a red yucca, I was like "I want this. bad" But I refrained from buying it because I already had the following:
1 Chocolate Daisy
1 Purple Skullcap (Austin NPSOT)
1 Shrubby Boneset
2 Purple Coneflowers (Williamson County NPSOT)
1 Chile Pequin
2 Zexmenia (Austin NPSOT)
1 Desert Marigold
2 Tahoka Daisy
1 Red Columbine
It's not like I really have a place for half of that stuff anyway. So thus I didn't get the Yellow red yucca...but man, I really do want one...Now I just need to make a spot for it...
