As the flowers fade from the Rhododendron...
we transition from the green and white time to the longer lasting summer wildflowers. These will be blooming in the sunny forest edges, small meadows, and around the pond, like this Swamp Rose.
Some of these are:
Monarda (or Bergamot if you prefer)
and Fringed Loosestrife
Other flowers that are in bloom now include but are not limited to:
White and Blue Vervain
Adder's Mouth Orchid
