Summer Blooming Flowers 6-23-2015

Happy Tuesday to you all!
Here’s what was blooming in 2013 and what was blooming in 2014.

Wisteria frutescens ~ American Wisteria


Cacti paddies!


Grasses flower also! Sooo, not going to try to ID this one. Surely, it is a weed, crabgrass?


Thalictrum aquilegifolium ~ Meadow rue


Delosperma ~ Beaufort West’


Dianthus gratianopolitanus ‘Firewitch’ ~ Cheddar pins, carnations


hmmm, anyone?


Penstemon digitalis ~ Beard-toung


Valerian officinalis ~ This herb plant has many, many uses. It can be helpful as a sedative, an anti-anxiety and for insomnia. Because it is so smelly, its extract has been used in perfumes. Another unusual thing about valerian is that the root and leaves containย actinidin, the same ingredient at catnip!


Keep calm and chive on =-)


Podophyllum peltatum ~ May apple. Maybe I’ll get one this year.

ยฉ Ilex ~ Midwestern Plant Girl
