Hi Kathleen, Your rose made an amazing recovery. You would never know it had been traumatized by hail! I have purple Betony in my garden as well, but I am not sure of the variety (possibly Stachys 'Hummelo'). This summer I came across a pink variety 'Pink Cotton Candy'. If you like the purple, you would probably like this pink one too. Red Monarda is a classic, but I have to say the pink and wine forms of Bee Balm are my favs. Sorry, I am unfamiliar with the last flower- I can see why you like it!


Simply stunning, Kathleen! Yes, I think I remember seeing your excellent photos of Dahlias last year, too. I think the last plant is Purple Prairie Clover (Dalea purpurea)?


Wow, beautiful dahlias already. When do you typically plant your bulbs?
