Kansas state flower. This is likely the sunflower that you're admiring on the side of the road in late summer. Birds love the seeds. An annual, but will reseed. May need to be staked. Grows well in dry, poor conditions.
A tall, structural plant with whimsical blooms. Prefers sunny, moist spots; may flop in too much shade; good for wetter rain gardens but it doesn't like to dry out. May be cut back after first bloom for a possible second bloom in the fall.
Female plants produce red berries that persist through winter and are enjoyed by wildlife. We can't guarantee gender but need male and female near each other to produce fruit. Typically only reaches 15 feet high.
Can take quite a bit of shade. Also called Wild Oregano, the minty leaves can be brewed for tea. May produce frost flowers in early winter. Spreads through rhizomes, though not as quickly as other mints.
A spreading vine that will grow along the ground and then up any structure it finds. Host for the pipevine swallowtail. Can be used as a privacy screen. Grown more for heart-shaped foliage than flowers. Toxic to humans if ingested.
