September 23—October 23
Balance is important to the Libra gardener. We all know balance is a tough thing to achieve in life and in the garden. But Cosmos and Poppies know a thing or two about it.
They do well scattered among wild grasses, mixed into more manicured landscaping, popping some color into planter boxes or pots.
We love them all but for you, Libra, we say go big on the double click: rose and cranberry, mixed with some snow-white poppies- they are an elegant, straight forward delight.
Tactful and diplomatic, upstanding and elegant, the Libra gardener will find common ground with the Gavota and Claudia tulips. Both of these varieties have bi-colored leaves, a sign of balance which pleases the eye. They are easy to grow, long blooming, and a gift to passersby.
