My sun garden used to have a great variety of plants within it. These two, which surfaced earlier in the season, are now in the minority. This year the gooseneck loosestrife, monarda, and obedient plant have taken over.
Vic wants me to leave the monarda alone because that's what drew a hummingbird last year. However, I need to pull up lots of loosestrife. I think it's even drawing nutrients from outside the bed; the earth on the other side of the plastic stripping isn't growing grass!
