|coreopsis beginning to bloom in sunny bed|
My daisies and coreopsis share space with lilies, coneflowers, black-eyed susans (rudbeckia), liatris, phlox and monarda. All of these plants are sun lovers. Full sun is at a premium in my yard. So I require my sun-loving plants to get along and share space. I really like the kind of crazy quilt flower bed that results.
This is "Jethro Tull" coreopsis I got last year. I just couldn't resist. Why the name? Well, the petals are fluted and IT ROCKS!
As you probably noticed, the pink phlox pilosa is till blooming! It's happy to have the company of the daisies and coreopsis!
Make the most of your sunny areas. If you let those wildflowers spread, soon you will have a fiesta of flowers!
I am joining Gail at Clay and Limestone for Wildflower Wednesday.
