Bigger Than Before

Last summer, a large wildflower emerged in the middle of our hosta garden. We spent some time identifying it and discovered that it was Three-leaved Rosenweed, which is native to the mountains west of us.

This summer, two of the plants returned. Again, they have grown to eight feet in height. The photo here was shot with me looking up. Currently, bees, butterflies, moths, and wasps cover the blooms. In the fall, the goldfinches will eat the seeds.

One last year, two this year, soon you'll be taken over by the yellow devils. Very cheerful however and if they bring all those visitors they are worth it.
