Sweet everlasting

Yes, believe it or not, that's a common name for a local native–sweet everlasting (Pseudognaphalium obtusifolium). It grows on our land northwest of Blanco. A few weeks ago, James cut off a short branch, brought it home, and stuck it in a small vase of water. Darned if the thing didn't die. So I kept it in water a while longer. Then I potted it up in a tiny pot. A couple of days ago, I put it in the ground. We'll see. The leaves of this annual species have a sweet scent. I hope it takes and reseeds!

I have that plant on my land too. I really meant to collect seeds last year because I think it would make a good rock garden plant and I do have plenty of rocks.
