                                      Leonurus cardiaca is a weed that freely seeds it's self around, but apparently some people use it for 'medicinal' purposes. Coarse leaves are toothed and stems are square with somewhat bristly hairs. Flowers are pinkish-white with soft purple-white throats with darker dots. The flowers are born in sharply pointed calyxes that make this plant a pain to weed out with bare arms. Plants grow 3 feet or so tall, but when found growing in and around the woods they can reach a height of 4 or more feet. I find that this plant has a displeasing scent to it and in my mind I lump it in with catnip, as unpleasant and to be avoided as much as I can. Flowers in late July and August. This perennial will grow into a multi-branched clump from a semi-tap root. Thankfully it's easily extracted from the ground and not one to leave small parts around to come back to life like some other 'weeds' out there.

                                      Leonurus cardiaca is native to Europe and naturalized in North America. Grow in full sun or part shade in most any soil except wet. Lightly cover Motherwort seeds, germination in 2 weeks at 65 F.

An attractive plant best used in a dense thickly planted garden or wild area, as they self seed readily, its easily enough to remove young plants and they start blooming very early. Here in Minnesota Leonurus sibiricus are best grown as annuals that start blooming in June/July and they continue to flower until frost. Allow a few seedlings to grow next year. Perennials in warmer areas. This in one of those plants that will move around the garden from year to year. Works well with most other tall plants.

Lilium formosanum has maroon shading on the outer sides of the trumpets. Will bloom the first year with an early sowing. Lilium formosanum grows up to 7 feet tall. The flowers are scented and produced on long stems which may need staking. The stems have long, thin grassy leaves. Generally easy to grow, doing best in full sun in well draining soils that hold some moisture in the summer, but the soils need to be dry in the winter.

                                                                      Zones 7-9. 5 and 6 maybe, if planted deeply.

Long blooming. A nice plant for it's long blooming period in late spring/mid summer. I like the soft textured foliage on this plant as much as the very attractive sky blue flowers that float above-and mixed-in the foliage. Best in dry, poor soils. Under shady or wet conditions plants grow leggy and flop. Very nice, airy and showy display.

The flowers are produced in spikes in late summer. Loved by many for its bright color and late blooming. This plant does best in constantly moist soils in full sun to bright shade. They resent dry hot soils, but do not thrive in heavy wet soils for long. A magnet for hummingbirds, and butterflies. Flowering can start in late July and goes on to Mid October. In the garden give them water during dry periods in the summer. Will self sow if the soil is moist. Can be short lived but well worth the effort to start new plants every few years. The plants purchased from nurseries with dark stems are hybrids that are not as winter hardy. The seeds are small and the seedlings grow slowly, so care should be taken during watering. Planting out and transplanting should be done with concern not to damage the roots.

Surface sow the seeds, they are very fine. Keep between 65 and 75F. Cover the pots or trays with clear plastic or glass to keep the medium moist, keep in a sheltered location out of hot, direct sunlight but give light as light helps promote germination. Germination normally starts in 2 or 3 weeks. If no or little germination move to 30-39F for 4 weeks.

Will bloom the first year with an early spring sowing.

Very showy in the front of the border were they will bloom best in full sun in well draining but moisture retentive soils. Blooms in Late June and July. I like them along a fence or mixed in amongst Catmints and Sedum's. After flowering plants can be cut down or you can leave the seeds heads on till they dry and use them as dried cut flowers in a small dried flower arrangement. Plants tend to go dormant in late summer and will return next spring. they are noticeable from a good distance.
