Hurray! Please put the photo in our database, Thank You! . It's a beauty!

Oh, an there is nothing wrong with your spelling...if you just use the correct pronunciation.
You wrote "Anneversary together", right? I'll just bet you were trying to type "anniversary together"...but, let's look at why my eyes see.

Put on your thickest southern accent; c'mon, if I can do it, anyone can. Ready?

Now say the words:
"I'm never sorry together"...using that creamy thick accent and see if it doesn't sound just like Anneversary together! Thumbs up

Sometimes the birds plant weed seeds too. Crying Sad Sighing!

Hubby and I have been feeding the birds every day year round, since Dec. 2000. We have feeders and spread mixed seed on the ground that the wild cottontail rabbits eat too.

During spring through fall, we add two hummingbird feeders (front and back of the house) and I plant flowers in containers and the ground for hummers, butterflies and bees.

@jimard8

Start a thread in the Agastache and Salvias forum http://garden.org/forums/view/ags/ That would be the correct forum, ok?

I don't grow that one, but perhaps someone else can help you.
