Plant of the week.
White Horehound (Marrubium Vulgare)

Horehound is tough perennial, hardy to zone 3. Drought tolerant, likes full sunshine and is easy to grow. This guy actually prefers poorer soils and does not like a lot of nutrients so you don't need to feed it. Horehound has beautiful gray-green crinkly leaves that provide interest in the garden even when it's not flowering. It has an interesting aroma too, some people find this really pleasant but deer and rabbits don't so they leave it alone.
This perennial is easy to grow from seed and once its established really does not need much in the way of attention. It does benefit from being cut back in the fall so it looks its best the following spring. Horehound is ideal for rock gardens or areas in full sun where other plants are not growing. Grows just about anywhere there is full sun. Just grow the seeds, plant the plants and sit back to enjoy the flowers along with the butterflies.

White Clover (Trifolium repens) Bird's Foot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)
Add this to your lawn and stop having to fertilze it. Clover fixes nitrogen which helps your grass. If you want less maintenance and a greener ‘lawn’ this is a must. More info.
More about natural lawns.
Tolerates heat and drought extremely well and also fixes nitrogen so it helps fertilize the plants around it. Trefoil is a low growing bushy plant that also tolerates foot traffic and cutting very well making it an ideal plant for walkways and inclusion in a lawn, or an interesting border plant. Great for hot dry areas. More info
