Too much yellow?

black-eyed susansMy second-grade neighbors told me yesterday that there’s too much yellow right now. Here and in the neighborhood, where I have certainly shared the wealth of black-eyed Susans. This is part of our front yard right now. What do you think?

I like that we should have color for the better part of two months. What other perennial can give you that?

My fall replanting plans include creating wedges in the mass of black-eyed Susans and spreading out day lillies that can then create clumps over the years. I also want to move some red crocosmia that bloomed at the same time as lilac bee balm to create another clump and to spread out the color and height.

  1. Wow, like a sea of flowers. Gorgeous.
    We have lots of oleander, pale pink and dark pink. Blooms all summer, and doesn’t need watering after the first three years.
