There might be a few friendly exotics and agastaches from the Southwest, but, this garden is a Central Basin garden through and through. In fact, if you were to visit a nearby woodland you would see almost all the same plants in bloom. Solidagos, Symphyotrichums, Verbesinas, Conoclinium coelestinum, Eupatorium, Panicums, Little Bluestems and even Chasmanthium latifolium are all Central Basin natives that thrive on my nearly neutral, shallow clay soil.
Goregeous aren't they!
They're the payoff for our long, long hot summers.
I am a day late for Bloom Day but, offer up this humble post and the blooming wildflowers for your enjoyment. Please pop over to May Dreams Gardens, where our delightful hostess has links to more Bloom Day posts then you can imagine.
