In the Organic Gardening Test Garden’s first year at a new location, we started small: Our plot measured only 40 feet by 50 feet. Even so, we managed to squeeze in a few flowers.

The unassuming tassel flower won us over with its demure charm. The tiny “tassels” nod and sway on slender stems, like little grace notes among the bigger and showier flowers in the garden. We hope this self-seeding annual makes a repeat appearance next year.
