The plant world is wide and vast and I just when I think I know a little about a lot I find something I know absolutely nothing about at all. Like this morning…I discovered online the Lespedeza thunbergii – never heard of it before — not sure I have seen it either.

I am trying to find one locally and if I can’t, then I’m going to order one from Plant Delights.
It blooms late in the summer and some people describe it’s flowers like a fall wisteria. I love the weeping cascade of flowers and given that it doesn’t need a lot of water or great soil, I am sure it will find a happy place in my garden.
