Here are just a few more pictures of plants that have just begun flowering in the last day or two:
A yellow selection of orange milkweed or butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa); the milkweeds are among my favorite native plants - they have gorgeous, exotic-looking flowers in a range of colors, come in different sizes, are all-around tough and vigorous, and serve as food for wildlife as glamorous as the caterpillars of the gorgeous monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus)
An Acanthus - I am not sure which species, though that does not really matter since this is another genus of which I would happily cultivate every species
Pineapple cactus (Coryphantha sulcata) - the flower should open wider once the sun comes out
I hope you like these... As always, more to come soon!
