Wow how beautiful :)

Sure wish I could grow some here, but as of last year they are now a class B Noxious Weed in WA State :(
I see your Liatris back there; sure hope I can get some to germinate for me this year.

Buddleia does not self seed for us and dies back to the ground each winter. It has to be well mulched or will not come back in the spring.

I ws some white liatris last year. Hope to see some bloom from them this summer.
