My Rock Rose is going hog wild.

Also known as labdanum. This plant is sprawling about 10 feet wide now, and I'd be kind of okay with it taking over the whole yard. 

The tall purple flowers is a standing variety of verbena. I originally planted the rock rose and verbena 2 summers ago and both have survived their neighbors and thrived. 

Earlier this spring, I cut the rock rose back a bit. I was going to clean the leaves and stuff out around the base until I realized some baby bunnies called that place home. 

You have to love plants that can only look this good if you completely neglect them!
