One of our favorite fall wildflowers is this wild ageratum, Conoclinium (Eupatorium) coelestinum that was already growing here when we moved in. It has been spread about to better enjoy the purple threads where they so enhance the foliage changes of the season.
I love the rabbit tobacco, Gnaphalium obtusifolium and with a little help to stand up straight and tall in a good spot for a change, it is hoped there will be seedlings in the same area next year and the next and next. But what ho! That tobacco chewing scoundrel, the grasshopper is hanging out in there! Hey you, go play your fiddle for some industrious ants, why don’t you?
Please join in the sharing of wildflowers each month on the fourth Wednesday with my dear friend Gail of Clay and Limestone. You’ll be glad you did.
