Over the Years - Several years ago a Common Boneset seed decided to put down roots at the edge of our nursery plants. It chose a perfect location, as it settled in under a huge Joe-pye-weed that provides some shade in the heat of the day; it was also lucky enough to land right at the edge of the sprinkler line. What more could a young Bonset plant ask for: water, drainage, sunshine and a garden where leaves are left in the fall that certainly improve soil quality. Who said plants aren’t wise.
