Bee exploring a native Clematis.
Smooth phlox, growing at the edge of a rain garden.
A member's lovely summer garden
This lovely garden is full of perennials, starting with a tall garden phlox, a red crepe myrtle, red beebalm, bronze smoke tree, 'Gypsy Queen' clematis, and an agastache. There is so much happening in this small space! Lovely!
This is 'Major Wheeler' honeysuckle, a selection of our native Oklahoma honeysuckle. Blooms in spring, and sporadically through the summer. Hummingbirds love this plant.
Veronica 'Georgia Blue' is a low-growing, spreading plant which likes good drainage and part sun. Lovely little creeper with beautiful spring flowers.
Cup-leaved penstemon. This plant is native to Oklahoma and enjoys a sunny spot where it can be left alone.
Butterfly Weed, a host for monarch butterflies. Plant butterfly weed in a dry, sunny area where it can remain. Nehi orange flowers!
Missouri Evening Primrose likes a well-drained site; here it is growing on the top tier of a sloping yard.
Robin's Plaintain. Another lovely little native plant that spreads itself around in sunny to shady areas.
Just a funky tulip to add to your spring-bloomers. Find it at Brent & Becky's bulbs.
Called Royal Catchfly for a reason; its leaves and stems are sticky and do catch small flying insects. Gotta love those red flowers.
