I just can't help myself. Here's my Mexican Sunflower. I got it because it's supposed to bloom longer, for the late butterflies.

Yes, CN, the Mexican Sunflowers (Tithonia) are beautiful, and if kept deadheaded they bloom right up until frost kills them in the fall.  The butterflies and hummingbirds love them, too! We always have some come volunteer from last year's seeds. The only butterflies, other than all of the fritillaries, we have seen so far this year are the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail and the Black Swallowtail. The Monarchs don't arrive here until mid-June.

Beautiful! Thanks for the tip about deadheading. I may not have done that if not prompted. pale Also, we have had occasional frost-free winters here, so is it possible to get another year out of it?

That trillium is gorgeous.  It decided to grow in the potato patch?????
My mom has a carefully guarded spot to coax trilliums to grow in.
