Wordless Wednesday— White Clouds and Sunflowers

Scenes from North Carolina Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill yesterday.

White Clouds

I have always like pink muhly grass but how about this white form? Muhlenbergia capillaris ‘White Cloud’ (Hairgrass).

Sunflowers

I think the darker yellow in the next photo is Swamp sunflower (Helianthus angustifolius). Not sure about the pale yellow flower.

      I like that white one too Christina. This is the garden we stopped by after our late lunch the day you visited. We were running late and it was closing anyway, so we didn’t have time to explore it properly. But these are display gardens of native plants close to the buildings (near the large willow sculpture you could walk through).

      My camera phone photos in the bright sun may have exaggerated the grass slightly, but only a tad. It really is one of those plants that commands you to stop and stare (and then you want to run your hands through it).
