What's This Stuff?

I planted these two flower plants a year or two ago. Now, I can't remember what they are. What is this stuff?

I saw about a dozen of these clumpy looking green plants in a field. It looks like it's going to turn in to something. What is this stuff?-thanks on all accounts.

Hi Larry,
Your top blue flowers look like a perennial blue salvia.

The pink ones are Dianthus (sometimes called "pinks", but you may also know them as carnations).

I think your green plant is Arrowhead (sagittaria)--listed in my Golden "Wildflowers of North America" book as an aquatic herb in the water-plantain family

Hi Larry - yes, I concur with Ruthie on all counts. I actually have the blue salvia and the dianthus growing in my front yard.

Larry said...

The first two names came back to me now.-the third is interesting-It is in a field that floods often.
thanks to both of you.

Darn - they beat me to it!

I knew one of three...the "pinks". I have them in my garden too.

I knew the blue salvia. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one in this blogging community that always wonders, "what's this stuff"?

Larry said...

Mary-I think I'm going to be asking that question again in the future.
