Re: peony, now Glaucidium, now Aconitum

Hello Ceres,
    You are speaking more to JoAn than I... she is the sun gardener. She has
one helianthus someone brought her a few years back. Has it with her grasses
on the west side of the property near a bluebird house on a fence post.
Terracotta bird bath is there as well. A landscaper friend just paid a visit
this week and brought her a variegated helianthus.... can't  remember the
name now. Cute little thing. He says it stays much smaller and is slower
grower than the species. I will tell here about Lemon Queen, and I know she
will want to know about the rudbeckia prairie sun... she grows several kinds
of ruds each year in her raised beds.
    I do get hit by blister beetles couple times a year on the fall blooming
anemone... they also hit clematis hard along with asparagras. It seems we
are a rarity here getting those beetles. Not very well known in this area.
