Kalimeris incisa ‘Blue Star’ ~ Japanese aster
Hmmm, didn’t get a close enough to figure it out… Drat.
Allium cernuum ~ nodding onion or lady’s leek
Helianthus hirsutus ~ Hairy Sunflower
Hibiscus moscheutos ‘Lord Baltimore’ ~ Rose Mallow
This is 8 inches wide! And I’m lucky enough to have it in my front yard.
Impatiens capensis ~ the orange jewelweed, common jewelweed, spotted jewelweed, spotted touch-me-not, or orange balsam
This is a cure for poison ivy. If you happen to have stumbled into some ivy… back away and looks for this plant. It usually likes to be near stream beds. Break the stems apart and rub on the exposed parts of your skin.
