Native Groundcovers and Other blooms

11 years ago

Cosmos sulphureus 'Diablo'


Phyla nodiflora

Nice little ground cover

nectar source for small butterflies

and host plant for the nifty little Phaeon Crescent


Calyptocarpus vialis

Lanceleaf Coreopsis

Coreopsis lanceolata

This one is perennial but needs a little more water

so it had a rough summer in the wildflower patch

last year. So I was happy to see these come back.

This one is in a flower bed so I deadheaded it and it's on its second flush now.

Purple Coneflower

Echinacea purpurea

Silver Ponysfoot

Dichondra argentea

This was early AM and the flash went off because it was on automatic, so this really highlighted the silver color.

Texas Star Hibiscus

Hibiscus coccineus

This flower is probably 6" in diameter.

This does require water, I have it in the 'ball diamond' bed that gets water from the septic system

Hairy Spiderwort

Tradescantia hirsutiflora

Yellow Puff

Neptunia lutea

I love this little guy and try to encourage it wherever it pops up. I just think it's so cute!
