Hi Sally,

Your article was captivating and I enjoyed every word. I love the thrill of performing detective work in the garden and Dave's is definitely one resource I most often rely on.

Wonderful read!

Will the plant files be updated with zone information, etc.?

What a great thing to provide home and shelter for the insects. This, to me is what gardening is all about.

Thanks so much BennysPlace. I can send you some flower heads when they dry, if you want. I *should* go back to the resources and try to fill in any more spots in Plantfiles, shouldn't I? Have to go make lunch right now.
Thanks for reading and replying to my article!

I too was delighted when fellow DGers helped me identified this plant that I've found in my perennial garden. A gift from birds/nature which is bugs/bees/butterflie most favorite:

A very enjoyable article. Thanks for sharing. I too want to know the names of plants and critters I find on my walks and around our place. And yes, DG has been a great resource: so many generous spirited and helpful people.

I appreciate this article so much as it has identified a much loved plant in our yarden for me. I have enjoyed it for a few years but never knew its name until I read your article. I notice all the different insects on it the other day. We have several of these all over the yarden.

What nice comments! And nice to hear I am far from alone in liking the native volunteers. Thanks all for reading. I agree- what would we do without DG?

Hi Sally :)

Thanks for helping me figure out what this plant was. We have had it now for several years and I wasn't really sure of the ID. We have one blooming now in our veggie garden border and several others blooming in different spots all around our property.

I didn't realize the butterflies and bugs liked it so much, I'll have to resist the urge to pull it out! I really like and do try to plant (and allow to pop up) native plants as much as possible.

Happy Gardening,

wind- you're welcome! If the sun's out today you still might have a nice crowd on yours. There are lots of tiny really fast flying things on them too. I just figure or hope, I'm supporting those beneficial wasps.,
Do they seem perennial for you? I have had them overwinter- I moved a nice one last fall.
