Shirl over at Shirl's Garden Watch has asked us to choose three plants that you would take to a desert island if you were so lucky as to have to go there and post about them today.
This became a difficult task for me. I don't think I would want to leave any plant behind. I wrestled with the thought and have decided that the first plant I would take would be the Butterfly Bush. If I were on a desert island I would like to watch and study the butterflies that were on that island and this plant is a sure magnet for butterflies. The second plant would be the hibiscus. Not only are they colorful but they attract hummingbirds and many islands have beautiful hummingbirds and I wouldn't want to miss any of them.
