LaGrange, Illinois

This small, newly planted, triangular-shaped garden gets open shade, or filtered sunlight.

Here is the same garden the following June. Foxglove Beardtongue, Penstemon digitalis, Ohio Spiderwort, Tradescantia ohiensis, Prairie Sundrops, Oenothera pilosella, and Thimbleweed, Anemone cylindrica, are all in bloom.

You can see how the garden is framed by the driveway and sidewalk.

The tall yellow flowerheads of the Compass Plant, Silphium laciniatum, stand watch over the garden. All Silphium seeds are loved by songbirds.

Royal Catchfly Silene Regia

A pretty composition!

Another view: the Stiff Goldenrod, Solidago rigida, is about to bloom. The delicate grass in the front is Side-oats Grama, Bouteloua curtipendula.
