Baptisia australis, Blue Wild Indigo started flowering this week. This is a very stately perennial worthy of any garden. There are a number of cultivars and other species that flower in different colors, namely Blue, White/Cream, and Yellow.
Gaillardia aristata, Blanket Flower, is very eye catching. Anyone who knows me knows that I don't like red flowers because they draw the eye away from the main subject when blurred in backgrounds. I know Honeybees love them though so that's a plus.
