Posted on 2022-09-222022-09-22 by the_dr_blue09/22/2022 afternoon after work The backyard sunflowers are quite magnificent at this point. I don’t see any in this picture, but I saw several bumblebees up on the flowers. The Salvia azurea are really doing well. I have a new bunch of Indiangrass sprouting and blooming! The little bluestem is blooming too. This clump has gotten quite happy in its second or third year now. Jeanne, Abby, and Mom have been kindly helping me over text to confirm my accidental imports of non native and invasive King Ranch bluestem or “KR grass”. As they bloom and get identified, I have been pulling them. I’m also continuing to work on pulling the annual, invasive Commelina communis. Unlike the native perennial dayflower, its roots are very shallow.

So neat you are getting some native grasses to join your prairie !
