Wildflowers in the June Garden

Here are some pictures of what is blooming for today's Wildflower Wednesday post which is hosted by Gail at Clay and Limestone. This June has been unusual in that the temperature has been 10+ degrees warmer than it should be. In fact the weather report this morning said that we have had 16 days in the 90's which is much earlier than it should be. The reason I mention this is that one of my bloomers is blooming very early but I'll let you see that for yourself down below. Enjoy!

Coneflower 'White Swan'
There's a purple coneflower planted right beside it.

It's way to early for goldenrod isn't it?

  2. Your coneflowers are stunning! That cappacino is quite unique as well. Hopefully we'll get some rain tomorrow to cool things down but June is a pretty hot month.

  3. It is a little early for goldenrod. Mine is not blooming yet and I've had REALLY hot weather too. Just keeping everything hydrated is a chore. Your flowers are beautiful.

  4. It's WAY early for there to be goldenrod (we're still in the lilacs here, Dave, and the peonies are about to open.) I love that deep cappuccino rudbeckia--haven't seen that around here. The coneflower beside White Swan looks like Big Sky Sunset, or Sundown, or maybe Summer Sky--maybe it's just my monitors. I never met a coneflower I didn't adore. Maybe I'll have to take part in this wildflower love-in too, though most of mine aren't yet blooming.

  5. Everything looks lovely.

    Do you think all of our blooms will be done in early? I'm thinking that. We're starting to roast here with 105 heat index and the temp will be 100 tomorrow. We desperately need rain and cooler temps.

  6. Yep I'm seeing blooms on my Solidago 'Baby Gold' already too. It's just so hot already that I'm dreading August.
