Everything goes with black
Some ladies are all about the "LBD" aka Little Black Dress, but my new "LBF" (F=flower) is one of this year's popular Petunias called, "Phantom - Everything Goes With Black. It is one of the new "Black Velvet" varieties making horticulture news. It has a gold star marking in the center. I planted it with a bronze Ipomoea batatas 'Sidekick Black Heart, a type of "sweet potato vine". I think the combination is quite pleasing. It is sitting on the top shelf of my new étagère. I just hope it doesn't freeze. It was in the 30's(℉) at night this week, but above freezing. So, fingers crossed!
