Early June 2008 - I really liked this group of plants together: Heliotropium aborescens (Cherry Pie), in a pot alongside golden hop and Artemisia 'Powis Castle'. Dark purple with silver foliage can look a little sombre, methinks, but the golden hop makes all the difference. The hop put itself here - self seeded or from one of its rampant runners from the original plant (removed a few years ago). I'll have to keep cutting it back as it's a rampant thing, but I love its bright foliage.
