another whorled coreopsis (Coreopsis verticillata) seems to be on the Georgia DNR's watch list... to determine conservation status.... One of the naturals out here in the sand-hill garden.

Beautiful photos. . . .I am so jealous of your hummingbird! :-) I have two small rose of Sharon plants, but never dreamed they'd attract hummingbirds. Of course, I rarely ever see them anyway and I've planted countless plants for them!
