I added the Hairy Beardtongue (Penstemon hirsutus) to my hellstrip last fall as part of my efforts to create a butterfly garden and something that will not get me fined by the county for "not weeding."

The rest of the garden is bursting with May blooms: Wiegela, Roses, Iris, Epimedium, Euphorbia, Azaleas, and lots of annuals. Just ended are the Lilacs, Tulips, Rhododendrons, Crab apple tree, Lungwort, Lily of the Valley, and many of the spring ephemerals like Dutchman's Breeches.
What is blooming in your garden today?
