Your honeysuckle bush post reminded me of this publication which I refound when I did a search on honeysuckle bushes. I forgot that some are native. Now I need to determine if mine are native or nonnative. I know I posted this on this forum before but I forget where. It's great.

Nice photo of the diervilla! I have a young plant that has filled out and gotten bushy this year--no flower buds yet.

You have a beautiful place linrose. Thank you for sharing your pictures. You are ahead of me. Nothing much is blooming here yet.

Not real showy plants but good bug buds. All blooming now in the garden.

Forgot to name them.
The first two are scrufy pea beginning to bloom. Very small pea like blossoms.
The third picture is northern bedstraw and it has been in a few years now and not developed into an aggressive spreader as many predicted.
Four is a white baptisia.
Five is wild quinine.

gloria, I'm a fan of wild quinine. It requires very little, stands up to the heaviest rains, and blooms early and for a long time not to mention pollinators love it. I really like white in a garden. I'm also a big fan of baptisia, I don't have the white but the regular blue false indigo. It takes on the presence of a shrub in the garden after it's done with it's spring bloom.

Ruellia - wild petunia - is blooming here now. We have a pretty good established patch of them in a corner of the field. I also planted some in the terraces. Coreopsis is still going strong, and actually is becoming stronger, supporting itself now instead of its usual floppy habit. Maybe ignoring it helps. Some early blooms of brown-eyed susans are popping up in the pocket prairie, must be last year's plants that survived and started early. Usually I don't see them until July, at least the self-sown ones. I pull bunches of them out every year but they are such prolific seeders you'd never know.

Linrose, when did the coreopsis start to bloom? There are many, many blooms sitting just about to open on the threadleaf coreopsis but the rainy cool weather of late seems to have stalled the process. Guess it is waiting for some warm sun. Nice that the ruellia does well for you.

I have four species, auriculata which blooms first in early April, then palmata and lanceolata that bloom about the same time in late May to early June and finally tripteris which comes on in late July to early August. I don't have any of the verticillata anymore but I think it blooms a bit later than palmata and lanceolata. Yes I love the ruellia, I'm not sure if the species in the field is humilis or caroliniensis, I did plant a humilis in the tereraces.

pawprint Mouse ears are blooming for me...

...I like these non-natives, highly invasive little guys. They don't really do much, the blue flower petals make a blue dye, the deer happily eat them...but they do cover the ground quickly!what's blooming now 2014-100_2160.jpg

Hey linrose, I've got a match to your brown-eyed susans, I've got them everywhere and I love the splashes of bright flowers.what's blooming now 2014-100_2161.jpg

Hey kchd, I've got Delicata squash blooming & making just fine! tytyty for the seed swap! what's blooming now 2014-100_2163.jpg ...I would show you my apple gourds also, but they are not blooming yet, I'm really proud of my apple gourd vines, because I was sure... the seed didn't make, early in the spring, but very good seed from you, is now making it's way to towering vines now!

Oh yeah, once you have a brown-eyed susan, you pretty much always will have brown-eyed susans and they pop up in the oddest places. My aromatic asters are like that too. Dayflowers are pretty, I don't have them but they remind me of natives like spiderwort.
