How does your garden grow?

Well this year ours is growing something for free! This abandoned pot on the deck has had a little shrub and friends spring up in the last 10 days or so – a hebe I believe Mother? (Please don’t tell me it’s a weed.) A native New Zealand shrub. Have watered it and talked to it to tell it that it’s welcome to grow and stay if it likes so we’ll see how we get on. I suspect it’s a seed blown over from the neighbours so hopefully they won’t claim it back if it grows into a handsome shrub!

Definitely not Hebe-looking at this stage. Could it be the Monarch’s favourite Asclepias curassavica? Some resemblance especially in view of your devotion to the species.
