At a mere foot tall, a Blue Shoal Creek Chaste tree is now in bloom. It is said to have a pleasant fragrance but it is barely perceptible to me. I can describe it as a heavy scent but not sweet like butterfly bush, my favorite fragrance, for example.
I’ve noticed that the lighter colored butterfly bushes have the strongest fragrance.
Penstemon ‘Red Riding Hood’ is blooming again after being deadheaded, Indian Pink Spigelia marilandica is winding down it seems, and marigolds are starting up
Crocosmia ‘Lucifer’ is blooming and very hardy.
