Yesterday, I posted the three photos of Celery Farm plants and asked if anyone could identify them. The photos are at this link:
Here are the answers...
The first two plants have been coming in where the loosestrife once ruled.
1. Blue vervain. http://www.ct-botanical-society.org/galleries/verbenahast.html
Yes, it sure looks like loosestrife, especially in the photo.
2. Blue monkeyflower (Mimulus ringens) -- likely new to the Celery Farm.
3. Viburnum. (Friend of this blog Pedro went a step farther and identified it as arrowroot viburnum. He's way ahead of me.)
And here's who eats the third item (and probably the other two) at the Celery Farm.
