Welcome to my Wildflower Wednesday post, join other blogs for their wildflowers on Clay and Limestone, hosted by Gail, with delightful photos of pollinators on Joe Pye Weed.
I was pleasantly surprised this month to out of the blue discover wildflowers I had grown from seed a year or two ago blooming that I didn't even know had survived. One such is a Rudbeckia from a mixed package of T & M seeds.
Agastache aurantica also surprised me, I thought it had bitten the dust over the winter-
Then there were the delicate blooms of Allium cernuum-
Limnanthes douglasii that I grew under lights bloomed much later than some that self-sowed from last year, these are very cheery and I hope they will self-sow more and establish themselves in my yard. They were getting nibbled by deer so perhaps they won't be able to really spread. In some areas in California they color the hills and are known as "Meadowfoam", and are inportant to pollinators.
I hope you are finding some native plants to brighten your gardens.
