Don't you just love them? These are the old fashioned plants that have survived in gardens for decades by being handed from one person to another.
A favorite 'passalong plant' in my garden is in bloom now. I call it Grannie Annie's Purple Columbine. It came from my son-in-law's grandmother's house as a tiny seedling a few years ago. It is now in it's glory.... loaded with charming old fashioned 'bonnet' type blooms of a deep purple. Each time I see it, it evokes pleasant memories of the gracious woman from whose home it originated. It is a special plant because it came from a special lady.
Passalong plants are a lovely way to share with friends!
