The second type has purple and white flowers but although the white may act as a marker the hummingbirds don't seem to be fussy.
My incredible crop of pomegranates continues to ripen. We have taken to having one for breakfast each morning. It is a lot easier than trying to get the juice from the fruit.
The blanket flowers are also flowering with more color. I think this one must be a cross between the native yellow and orange and the burgundy variety which I have grown from seed in the past.
I have a small area of native planting, in front of the house, which I have been nurturing for the past few years. Under a canopy of live oaks I have removed the invasive King Ranch bluestem and am encouraging lantana, Lindheimer senna, Gregg's mist flower, and this yellow daisy. I don't have an identity for it as yet but the deer do eat the plant and I wonder if these flowers will be there tomorrow.
