What is blooming?

Recommended Posts

Mudhog started this thread  on the old site and I would miss not having one here.

I will kick it off with this: Summer flocks

Last year I started a few Maypop plants in containers I set in the yard, I forgot about them and they froze. I thought they were dead and just emptied the pots this Spring and one plant survived and stated growing. It's late but should make a few fruits to save seeds from.

Remember eating them as a kid.  Caution they can become invasive.

The Firebushes are blooming like crazy. I cut them off even with the ground each winter and they come back strong. The bees and hummingbirds love them.

i love this thread!  they are all so pretty! 

 

i wish i could grow flowers!  i have put some lilies, iris and other perennials in the ground, but they have to be plants I can plant and ignore.  lol.   i kill annuals every year when I forget to go out front to water them.  i put fake flowers out there last year and this year.  lol.

This summer I grew a plant that was new to me ,but highly recommended. It was Sunflower Mexican Torch, or Tithonia rotundiflora.  It grew to 7 feet tall and was something thing to see. The butterflies and bumble bees loved these flowers. During Sept. when the butterflies are abundant there would be at least 8 large butterflies and a dozen skippers and bumblebees all through the day.  plants got so big and heavy that I had to stake them.  I got the seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seed company, but I am saving the seed pods for next year.
