Waking Up With Wildflowers Friday, June 16th

Enjoy locally made coffee and treats from Pecans.com while experiencing our first wildflower stroll through the gardens. A great chance to learn about native plants, socialize with friends, and test your wildflower knowledge with a friendly competition. The event is perfect for adult wildflower and coffee enthusiasts alike. Cost is $5 per person. For questions contact 325-648-2750 or savearly10@gmail.com.

Rains earlier this month brought some late spring blooms to the gardens. Maximilian sunflowers brighten up the gardens even on the cloudiest of days. These floral giants can grow up to 10ft tall and are loved by pollinators, wildlife, and livestock.

One of the last spring wildflowers to bloom in the J. Waddy Bullion Gardens, the American Basketflower has been waiting patiently for the perfect time to shine.

Standing Cypress is a great ornamental wildflower for any native garden and their reddish orange blooms are known for being hummingbird magnets. These beauties are in bloom all along the highways in Mills County, so keep your eyes out for striking stalks of scarlet trumpets.
