A survivor

Not many plants survive under my care whether they are inside or out. The ones  outside that have been around for a long time were planted by someone else.  I was surprised to see that something I planted last year is still alive.

I can't remember what this is but I think it was some kind of lilac? Whatever it is, I like the white flowers on it.

  1. I have seeds for a plant that I got as a gift a little while ago, but I haven't planted it because I'm afraid I won't be able to keep it alive.

  6. Don't think it is a lilac - they bloom in the Spring and the leaves look wrong - closest I could find after a quick search was a mallow plant...

  7. It's pretty whatever it is and I'm glad it's still living. That rocks when things survive.

  9. Some people are just not good with plants. My Mum couldn't keep a plant alive in or out just like you.
    The white flower is lovely.

  10. Ann - if I had to guess it's a form of tardiva hydrangea. Do google to verify. We had one in Bozman that grew like a weed - this could be a mini form of plant.

    Let me know and have a great weekend - Katie

  14. Very pretty whatever it is Ann! I can kill off plants in a heartbeat too so stick with the tried and true hardy perennials,makes for a boring garden but at least it's alive!
