A (mostly) Native Flower Arrangement
Here's a way to learn native wildflowers, which my wife brought in from the backyard. In the middle is a white version of purple coneflower. The red is beebalm. The deep yellow are black-eyed susans (Rudbeckia hirta); the cloud of white flowers in the background are meadow rue. Non-natives joining in are the light yellow disks of an ornamental variety of yarrow, and one blue lavender at the top.
