Extraordinary in the ordinary…

Allium, aka Wild Onion was still going strong in Chicago’s Lurie Garden last month. Though onions don’t seem spectacular, their flowers are quite interesting to observe. Copyright 2022 Pamela Breitberg
Rough bark makes a complimentary background for Meadow Bistort (Polygonum bistorta). Simple beauty that requires close examination to fully appreciate. Copyright 2022 Pamela Breitberg
Tall Ironweed (Vernonia gigantea) has appropriately the steel skyscrapers as it’s background at Lurie Garden. This striking native is another fall bloomer in the Aster family. Another prairie native, Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) accompanies the Ironweed. Copyright 2022.
