My husband took this image in front of one of my flower gardens. From left to right: Helianthus salicifolius (Willowleaf Sunflower), Lagerstroemia (Crepe Myrtle), Monarda (Bee Balm), and Helianthus giganteus (Giant Pale Yellow Sunflower) cultivar ‘Sheila’s Sunshine’, or Helianthus angustifolius (Swamp Sunflower) cultivar ‘Matanzas Creek’, or some offspring of those two sunflower cultivars. I will not identify the weed!
