Transition Time

As the flowers fade from the Rhododendron…

we transition from the green and white time to the longer lasting summer wildflowers. These will be blooming in the sunny forest edges, small meadows, and around the pond, like this Swamp Rose.

Some of these are:
Obedient Plant

Purple Coneflower

Rattlesnake Master

Royal Catchfly

Swamp Milkweed

Monkey Flower

Monarda (or Bergamot if you prefer)

and Fringed Loosestrife
Other flowers that are in bloom now include but are not limited to:
Black Cohosh
Heal All
Hustonia spp.
Spotted Wintergreen
Trumpet Creeper
White and Blue Vervain
Adder’s Mouth Orchid
