Flower Power


The highlight of the Cleveland Botanical Garden's Spring Fling Weekend, which starts today, could very well be the Western Herb Society's plant sale, where 2006's Herb of the Year will be unveiled. Which herb trounced the competition? The practical oregano? The aromatic lemon verbena? The life-enhancing yarrow? Sorry, inferior herbs, but this year's honor went to the pelargonium, a geranium that comes in a variety of scents, including peppermint, apple, and coconut. There's also a spring garden fair — where vendors offer tons of gardening products, botanical art, and outdoor accessories — and the American Rhododendron Society's annual show, featuring an array of lushly colored plants.
