I wanted to share these two varieties that popped up all by themselves in my daughter's raised bed:

Shades of Blue Larkspur (seeds from Botanical Interests) and Diablo Cosmos (seeds from Seed Savers Exchange, whom I love!!).
Flowers that easily reseeded Westin20

Sandwiched between two tomato plants, I think these look beautiful.  The bumble bees can't get enough of them!  I dead head every day... I don't want these blooms to ever stop.

Very nice Windmere.  I also had cosmos reseed in my garden, even in the aisles that have newspaper topped with pine bark nuggets for weed suppression.  Also, dwarf French merigolds reseeded where ever they were planted last year.  I did not have to plant any flowers for bees in my garden this year because of the reseeding.

LOVELY VOLUNTEERS!!!

I have tons of Black-eyed Susan, originally dropped by birds, I think, and I have since been spreading the seeds as far and wide in my yard as I can. I have also collected and given away seeds to some friends who just love the sunny cheerful faces in my front yard, and they are going crazy in their yards as well. I also have lots of volunteer Hollyhocks, which I think someone else just posted somewhere as being cheerful flowers ( I AGREE!!!) and I intend to dig up some of them that are volunteering in awkward places (at the end of Hubby's parking space) and replant in more eye-appealing areas.

Oh, how preeeeety!!!

An added bonus is larkspur's usefulness in dealing with Japanese beetles.  I read somewhere (tried to find the link to post it here, but its' gone AWOL) that the JBs are attracted to larkspur and 4 o'clocks but since they're poisonous, they act as a good control for the JBs who get to enjoy a last meal before they croak.

I tried to grow both Larkspur and 4 o'clocks but had absolutely none of the seeds germinate for me.  I need to try again.  They're very pretty.  Thanks for sharing!

Post  Windmere on 7/20/2014, 7:45 pm

Thanks very much for your kind words all.  I think when you get bonuses like this... it's like getting a surprise present and you (well, I) get excited.

I wanted to ask... with regard to the black eyed susans... do any of you think I could get away with sowing some now?  I have some that I got from ... oh dear can't remember but it's the really nice company that is "winter" ... something.  They give away free seeds.   Anyway... black eyed susans were one of my mom's favorite flowers.  I think it would be nice for my daughter to experience something her grandma really liked.


Oh!  I had no idea about larkspur and four o'clocks being good for pests.  When I lived in California.. four o'clocks virtually grew wild in my childhood yard.  Um... I'm embarrassed to ask this, but ... what does "JB" stand for?  All I can think of is June Bugs.

JB  stands for Japanese Beetle which I think is the same as a June Bug but I am not positive.  Here in Fayette co the Japanese Beetle visited my garden in June and were gone by July,

Correct on my shorthand for Japanese Beetle being JB, but know that the JBs are most certainly NOT the same critter as a "June Bug". Japanese Beetles typically hang around for a bit (in my area from July to late August/Sept) and are some of the most destructive pests you can imagine, practically skeletonizing the leaves of whatever plant they happen to be dining on.

June Bugs typically emerge in early spring and buzz around alot at night when they're out, but the adult beetle doesn't do as much damage to plants as the adult JBs do. The June Bug grubs, on the other hand, are the hungry ones and can chow down on many kinds of plant roots doing considerable damage in the process.

June bugs typically come in June and buzz around during June nights and can also go into July.

Windmere - some black-eyes susans are annual and some are perennials.
"Goldstrum" is perennial for certain - don't know about others.

Annual seeds - probably best seeded in spring - my annuals reseed themselves, BUT I found them difficult to move to new locations.

Forgot to mention that purple cone-flowers (Echinacea purpurea) are extremely easy to re-seed. Some of the babies, I've sold on Craigs List - they sell well, BTW (by the way).

Mine are the native species so they breed true - i.e. not the newer hybrid ones.

There's a lot of echinacea purpurea blooming on Hartness Ave. in Springfield, Vt.

I have reseeded marigolds, cosmos, portulaca (moss rose) and basil in my flower beds. I transplanted to other parts of the flower beds and to the holes in the cinder blocks around the rose bed. And one nasturtium grew from a seed that fell from last year's potted plant.

Front yard - hot pick Cocks Comb.  It reseeds each summer.  Right now it is one of 2 flowers the bees have, the other being Mexican Sage.

My cosmos, marigolds, nasturtiums, and borage reseed each year.  Actually my cosmos this year came back in the spring from seeds dropped last year. One particularly large cosmos volunteer dropped seeds again this summer and they have grown into full size plants again and are now flowering.
