Today’s #prettyflowers are actually considered to be a herb🌱. #bergamot also known as bee balm, monarda, or bee mint are a magnet for hummingbirds, bees & other pollinating insects. Bergamot is a Native North American plant, and it’s aromatic leaves , which contain citronella, have traditionally been used for tea. As a bonus, the beautiful flowers are also edible!🌸. Bergamot is a perennial herb that will spread generously but can easily be contained. The #kitchengarden is the perfect place to plant these lovelies 😍. There is also another variety called lemon bergamot I still want to get my hands on some of those seeds. I started these bergamot from seed several years ago and have them planted all over the place to #helpsavethebees I also dry the leaves to enjoy the tea and for the first time, last night I added some to my #kombuchabrew It added a distinct herbal note to the Black & Rooibos tea already in my brew ❤️ #containergardening #perennialflowers #perennialherbs #everydayisearthday #earthdayeveryday #easytogrow #lowmaintenance #droughttolerant #earlgrey #cutflowers

Lisää mysteeri-kukkia. (Tarkoittaa etten tiedä mitä nämäkin ovat🙈...) Vaan on silti ihan hitsin hienoja nuo ekan kuvan violetit rehut: hujestavat kasvaa melekeen kahdessa metrissä. Ja takaa puskee samannäköisiä keltaisia. Ihan jees ostaa talo ja puutarha, jotka yllättävät ja opettavat koko ajan.👍 #onhanmelkoinentarhuri #eitietoa #opettelenkokoajan #puutarhakukkii #monivuotisetkukat #puolenhehtaarinpuutarha *** *** ⚘⚘⚘ More mystery-flowers from our garden. (Meaning I don't know what they are called🙈...) #whatalowsygardener #sorrydontknow #noknowledge #learning #garden #gardenflower #perennialflowers #halfhectaregarden

Today's #flowerfriday features pollinator favorites #liatris and #sunflower with some friends (in order: harvestman arachnid, sweat bee, tri-colored bumblebee, and leafcutting bee) . Liatris, also known as #blazingstar or #gayfeather , comes in white, pink, or purple and has a long bloom season. Flower stalks bloom from the top down and provide food for pollinators and other insects for much of the summer. These plants are drought tolerant, hardy, and relatively disease free. Another plus is that they are easily managed. They spread only so much from their corms and can be propagated and moved easily by digging them up in spring and breaking them apart. (Pictured are plants I separated earlier this spring) . Here in #utah #sunflowers are a common sight, sometimes considered to be weeds (pictured are volunteer plants). They grow readily from seed, wild varieties need no supplemental water, and #nativepollinators love them. As an added bonus, their seeds attract and feed #nativebirds in the fall. Frequently I find these plants housing #jumpingspiders which are always a welcome friend in our gardens or house. . #nativebees #utahnativebees #utahbees #utahpollinators #pollinators #insects #perennialflowers #annualflowers #gardening #volunteerplants #liatris #waterwiseplants #harvestman #daddylonglegs #bees #bumblebee #leafcuttingbee

We’re getting so many floriculture visitors this month! They know that now is the best time to see the differences between varieties stand out and make meaningful evaluations. During the mornings we see industry professionals, and in the evenings more vans of plain sect growers tend to visit. For some reason people avoid the beating heat of direct midday sun 🤔 Here are @greenthumbmaroonheart and Tim Duffin of #ballhorticulture visiting their outstanding verbena ‘EnduraScape Blue Improved’. It’s a uniform, prolific bloomer that is great for containers or landscape!

These were gone from the garden for the last 2 years. They by far, are my most favorite variety, "Smoke Rings". They have such a wonderful color nd are a very substantial flower. This one isn't quite to its normal consistency, but it is the first bloom back after a long absence, so we'll cut them some slack 😉 But SOOOOO happy to see them returning 🤗🤗💖💖 #daylilylove #oldfriendreturns #inmyownbackyard #perennialflowers #happyreturns #flowerpower #prettyposies #daylilly #bloomingbeauty
