Re: game for the day....


Chris - this is the game of the DAY, not the first half hour of the day! ;+)

I'm going to agree and disagree on some, though much is a guess:

1. Lotus corniculatus, Bird's Fott Trefoil
2. Impatiens walleriana 'Ole Peppermint'
3. Does look like Monarda fistulosa, a prairie flower, American Wild
Bergamot
4. Could be Lavatera thuringiaca, but that's zone 8 - is it a reseedling?
Otherwise, still checking on other mallows.
5.  Centaurea scabiosa
6. Could be Sedum spurium
7. Tatarian Statice, Goniolimon tatarica
8.  Could be a self sowing sweet pea, the vining Lathyrus odoratus (A) or L.
latifolius (P-but usually to Z6).  But I think it is probably another
Legume, will have to work on it.    BTW, Lathyrus vernus, Spring Vetchling
(P) is hardy for you.
9. Definitely a Rudbeckia, a hirta variety, not fulgida.
