A Glorious Yard in Oak Park, Illinois

This sunny front yard is always ablaze with color and activity. The garden beds are constantly visited by birds, butterflies and all sorts of other ineects.

Here is the view from the top of the stairs. What pleasant sigth to greet you as you step out of the house!

Here is Gulchin standing in the front and side yards.

Sweet Black-eyed Susan, Rudbeckia subtomentosa, is a beautiful hardy member of the Aster family. It gets to about four to six feet tall, enjoys sun to light shade, slightly wet soil, blooms from Summer into the Fall and grows like a runaway train.

If are are really interested in a flower that can get out of control easily, but is very beautiful and unique, Rosin Weed, Silphium integrifolium, is made just for you. It has colorful yellow flowers, leaves that are rough to the touch and interesting bracts (a structure that looks like buds but are actually leaf formations).

Rosin Weed is a Silphium and is closely related to the Compass Plant, Cup Plant and Prairie Dock.
