Bloom spike soon to have little red or blue blossoms along its length.
Color doesn't really matter, butterflies are equally attracted to both.
I am just so proud of this Porterweed plant.
This fall I will not fail to take cuttings and save seed.
In the meantime, butterflies stay busy on Tithonia,
Verbena on a stick, Lanatana, Crocosmia, Zinnias, and Duranta.
This fellow is too busy on Crocosmia to hold still.
Poor little thing had tattered wings, still flying.
Spicebush Swallowtails are showing up to join the Pipevine cousins since
Duranta commenced bloom.
Cloudy and damp all day. We've had 2.5 inches of rain total in the past four days.
Grateful for every drop.
