So dear planties, what the heck IS this plant?! It was solo in sparse curbside planting at a brand new apartment complex here in the southwest hills of Madras, Oregon. We didn't see any others, but it definitely appears planted as the rock much is placed around it, so maybe not a weed? (Or the landscape crew thought it was a landscape plant and mulched it ๐Ÿ˜†) It sort of looks like an Artemisia, or maybe Santolina spp. but the foliage is tiny, and though it is not very aromatic, it's a bit sticky. No flowers, but there could be tiny buds along the stems. About 20" x 20"
I haven't a clue as to what it is, ideas? Thanks!

We ran away today!
Out on the John Day River near Spray, Oregon.
Western vervain / Verbena lasiostachys was covered with fluttering nectar seeking orange butterflies. Are there any lepidopterists out there who would care to I'd?

we're sharing some garden images of our garden in Madras last year. Mitzi was so proud of "her" watermelons!
This year? A spring rollercoaster of warming and freezing, forever spring rains, HEAT and gophers seeking moisture and roots in  have made a mockery of this garden. Gonna rethink next spring and prolly bring out the HD frost blankets.
How are your gardens doing? Feel free to share images - if Facebook won't allow you to post them, send them in a PM and we will share them for you <3

...just a little taste of late summer, courtesy of some perennials in our demo garden area. If your plants are looking a bit dodgy and bloomed out, don't forget to dead head all spent blooms +cut them back, like really cut them down about 1/2 way, but also water and maybe fertilize them a bit with a soluble fertilizer, and/or give them some nutrients via a compost mulch.
