There are alot of H's represented here in our garden.
Most notably

And many Hydrangea.

The pic above shows "Bluebird' hydrangea(H. serrata) with the Little Grapette daylily.
There are too many Hemerocallis to choose from mostly.

Here is a link to a few more favourites.

Honeyqueen lily, which always puts on a great display in spite of being located under a very large birch tree.

Betty, I like your Helenium - are they related to Echinacea? The Hyacinda Bean Pod is certainly different. I thought it said hyacinth at first which made me very curious. :wink:

Hibiscus - 'Moonlight' and 'Purple Galaxy'.

Joan I cannot spell, it is Hyacinth Bean, when I resize the files for the soup I save with the first letter and whatever I think it may be spelled like. Then I check the spelling before posting - well most of the time....

I don't think the helenium is related to echinacea..
