Buckeye and gulf fritillary visit mexican clover (richardia sp.)

sent me some pink turk's cap hibiscus seedlings... and they didn't exactly come true... Pink ones & white ones from the 2 I kept... too bad that the ones I gave away ran into the tidy garden syndrome and got weeded out before they bloomed... :(
The voles ate the roots of this wildflower over the winter, but it came back in abundance from last years dropped seed.
