Way back in the beginning of December, Tina, from In the Garden posted an article about signature plants. I read what other bloggers said they thought would be their signature plants, but this is what I said in my comment to Tina: "I am having trouble deciding whether I have a signature plant. I love different kinds of amsonias. They have lots of little blue flowers in the spring, but provide good looking foliage all season. Am I saying I am good looking in all seasons? I don't think so. LOL So in what way do I identify with amsonias? I'm not sure. Also, I have day lilies all over the place. They grow in a wide range of conditions. Each flower blooms for only a day, but the plants have lots of blooms and keep opening up day after day. I love day lily bloom time."
Last week, Gail, from Clay and Limestone posted about an area she wants to plant, and is considering different bloggers' signature plants. She said someone should adopt amsonia. As I was reading that, I thought I should do that. Then I read where Tina let her know that I have posted about amsonias, and so Gail put a link to my blog.
With that all said, I have made a commitment to my beloved amsonias, which I have already expressed my love for. I thought of another way I identify with them. We like to grow and keep going strong even if cut back. I still like a large variety of plants, though. I am such a collector!
