What’s in Bloom – July 31, 2018

The echinacea are looking great. Be sure to search out the Monarda (beebalm) and watch for hummingbirds at the bright colored flowers. Lilium selections look and smell amazing! The bottlebrush buckeye, a butterfly magnet, is in full flower. Phlox are starting to put on quite a show, too. Hydrangea paniculata (peegee or panicle hydrangea) are showy too!
