This small sunny front bed is planted with flowers that bloom through all the seasons.
In the photo on the left in mid-Summer the Joe Pye Weed, Eupatorium purpureum (lower left), Sweet Black-eyed Susan, Rudbeckia subtomentosa (lower right) and Purple Giant Hyssop, Agastache scrophulariaefolia (center against the stairs) are flowering now.
In both photos we find the Calico Aster Aster lateriflorus. In the left photo we have it budding in the center in front of the stairs. We find it in full flower in the photo on the right.
See the Prairie Dropseed Grass, Sporobolus heterolepis in the small planter on the stair ledge.
