, acid green euphorbias and an array of other plants come into their own.
Gloriosa daisy, a favorite of flower gardeners, is a tall cultivar of Rudbeckia
The grasses Schizachyrium scoparium and Tridens flavus and the forbs Rudbeckia
Rusts and chocolates color chrysanthemums, many black-eyed Susans (also in the rudbeckia

I find myself engaging in conversation with strangers whose gardens I admire and often coming away with a handful of seeds to propagate myself: cleome, or cat's whiskers; rudbeckia
, or black-eyed Susan; salvia, both red and blue; gallardia, the gorgeous purple daisy-like flowers; clary sage and garden sage; basil and calendula and pot marigold; all sorts of minds and lambsears and poppies and hollyhocks and lemon balm .
It is stunning when planted in a group or with the contrasting daisy flowers of golden yellow Rudbeckia
hirta Marmalade and Heliopsis scabra Golden Plume, or the bold blooms of day lilies or hemerocallis.
