Seed ripensmid-July

Just one of last year's seedlings survived - and I'm glad it did. Compared to Phyteuma orbiculare, which has lived in our garden for several years now, the flowers on this one are less crowded, so that the structure of each one is accentuated.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
