African Honey Bush.

This is a wonderful plant. I like it most for its blue-green, perfectly serrated foliage, which looks for all the world like it's been trimmed with pinking shears. If the leaves are bruised, they smell of peanut butter, and it gives forth unique dark-red flowers.

As natural textures go, this is among the best.

i'm going to guess by the name it can't survive in a 5b. but it does sound really strange and interesting. sigh, catalogue season has begun, i'm overwhelmed with them this year. we'll see if i can actually buy anything.
