Some of my newly favorite plants are going strong right now. Butterfly bush, joe pye weed, culver's root, and some liatris are the obvious workhorses, but here are some blooms (and some not) that keep on giving. I should have an image of white nodding onion, but I don't--it's also doing fantastic.
|Wild Senna -- Cassia hebecarpa, saying "come hither bumblebee" for a month.|
|The microscopic blooms of bushclover -- Lespideza capitata.|
|This is an 8' sunflower. Ladders are good.|
|Sunflowers are just as interesting before petal time.|
|I know, invasive thistle thug. But butterflies love it. I deadhead before it seeds.|
|Why can't swallowtail caterpillars be blooms?|
