My garden loves yellow and purple. If a plant has yellow or purple blooms, chances are it will thrive in this garden.
At the pond, yellow irises have begun to bloom.
In the rock garden, the African daisies bloom.
I love these hardy daisies that I planted 17 years ago. The plants remain small, and, since they grow in filtered sun and afternoon shade, they’re never blanketed in flowers, but the bloom from March through November, and they provide a steady nectar source for skippers.
I’ve let my broccoli raab bloom. Look! It’s so beautiful! The bees think so, too.
