This is a perennial that you don’t see all that often. Why that is I m not really sure since it seems reliable and can grow in some rough conditions. Masterwort can grow in shade or sun (as long as there is adequate moisture available). They aren’t great for borders but can work there if they have to. It is a quite hardy plant and slowly increases in size. The flowers are now available in several colors but overall it seems hard to find at the nurseries.
Since it is Sunday here is the bonus snapshot. It is a cute little daisy that has several medicinal functions as well. Its use dates back to ancient Egypt and among other things was thought to be able to revive wilted plants placed near it. The flowers are fragrant.
