Wildlife Gardening



CREATING Color and scent

Hummingbird Bush, Flame Acanthus begins blooming in late June


My west fence row is covered with flame acanthus, turk's cap and abelia, The hummingbird visits at about 11:30 every day. The abelias are fountain shaped and are lovely underneath native oaks (post oak and Black Jack oak). They produce a beautiful scent throughout the spring, summer, and fall.


softly scented abelia flowers




Other pollinators can be found throughout the day.

Turk's cap

Ruellia and butterfly or moth
Sometimes you don't know what you will find until you take a closer look.
