more monarda, because that’s what’s happening right now. lilies and irises have come and gone. goldenrod and aster are next. but now if the season of bee balm and black-eyed-susans. interesting to note that bee balm and black-eyed-susans are the exact same color combo as goldenrod and asters. yup, a pollinators two-fer. the two colors, purple and yellow, are complimentary (directly opposite each other on the color wheel), so the contract makes both flowers appear more vivid to the bees than they would appear growing solo. a menage-a-troi where everyone is happy.
