"What are they called?"
"So many bees!"
"How do they spread around?"
"Beautiful, just beautiful." (My favorite kind of comment.) :)
They are beautiful, and plentiful, and full of bees and butterflies. I hope their color comes true on your monitor. In reality they are flowers with a lemon yellow center disk, with the outer part of the petals being a more golden yellow, and the effect is very sunshiney and bright. They look accurate on my desktop monitor but on my Kindle they have a more Dijon mustard tone which is NOT accurate.
seashore mallow will bloom with the swamp sunflowers in October.
and excude a sweet but earthy perfume. A little like woodsmoke.
They have been feeding by the dozens, maybe even hundreds on the Bidens.
and as I thought I was saying it wrong. It's pronounced with a long i, like the plural of Joe Biden. These flowers are also known by the unlovely name of beggarticks, due to the fact that their seeds stick to clothing. The seeds have two narrow pliable "pins" at the end (non-painful) that enable them to cling to cloth and fur. Other common names include tickseed sunflower, black jack, cobbler's pegs, and Spanish needles.
since the Genista moth cats left sad brown skeletons of my baptisias.
