Gardeners born under the sign of the wheelbarrow are intrepid and full of energy. Need help with a strenuous gardening project? They are the friend to call. But if the project is going to take a while, think twice because these gardeners are also a bit impatient. Favorite flowers include geraniums, honeysuckle and witch-hazel. Hawthorns are often associated with gardeners born under this sign, and vegetables include alliums, leeks and shallots.

Famous botanists and gardeners born this month include Pehr Kalm, Swedish botanist; Luther Burbank, American botanist/horticulturist; Andre Michaux, French botanist; Lilla Irvin Leach, self-taught American botanist; Archibald Menzies, Scottish physician and naturalist; Liberty Hyde Bailey, American horticulturist; Anders (Andreas) Dahl, Swedish botanist; Thomas Meehan, botanist and nurseryman; Professor Heinrich Gustav Adolf Engler, German botanist; Vincent Van Gogh, painter; Wilhelm Kordes II, German rose breeder and Vita Sackville-West, English author & gardener.

Hypericum kalmianum is one of my favorite plants the Kalm found on his exploration of No. America's NE . It is reliably hardy, tough and has wonderful sunburst-like blooms for months in early and mid-summer.
