It's time for the hot weather plants: Rudbeckia, bee balm, daylilies and phlox.
Monarda fistulosa 'Claire Grace'. The foliage of this bee balm has an outstanding fragrance, so strong that you can smell it when the rosettes are stepped on in winter. M. fistulosa is much more drought tolerant than didyma.
Daylily 'Buttered Popcorn' with 'Midnight' Penstemon and Purple Coneflower
Verbena bonariensis with Four o' Clocks and Buddleia davidii 'Potter's Purple'
Phlox paniculata 'Robert Poore' looks cool even when the weather is hot enough
to melt an ice cream cone in less than five minutes.
Thank you to Katarina at roses and stuff for hosting Blooming Friday.
