Good day everyone!!

Click to see what was blooming in 2013 or blooming in 2014.

Cephalanthus occidentalis ~ Buttonbush

I feel these are underused in the landscape. Likes moist soil and partly sunny skies.

Lobelia cardinalis  ~ cardinal flower

I should know this. It was in client’s rain garden.

I’m going to guess this is a weed of some sort. I can’t find it in my wildflower keys. I don’t have any weed keys!!

image

Plantago major ~ broadleaf plantain or greater plantain

image

Portulaca oleracea ~ purslane  This is in my annual pot. love all the pollinators it attracts.

Campanula rapunculoides ~ creeping bellflower or rampion bellflower

Phlox subulata ‘Millstream Daphne’

  1. I don’t know what no 3 is but it ain’t no weed. It’s only a weed if you don’t want it there. But it has a very pretty flower so don’t be a red neck weedist.

  2. I forgot how lush and beautiful the vegetation around IL can be. We’re camped in our spot for the next week at Paul Wolff Campground west of Elgin and working on adjusting to the humidity 🙂
