Ah, at the end of summer – hot and sticky, soft, fragrant mornings, storms that darken the sky in the afternoon, watering our gardens, and bringing in the evening katydids and cicadas. For sun protection and bug fixes, and for more fresh produce, ice tea, ice cones, lemons and sunscreen.
Probably the last visit to the beach. Although everything must end, and there are signs that he is fleeing in the summer. Before it leaves, we can still enjoy some summer-summer flowers.

“Bitter Flower,” “Rose-Gentleman”, Sabatia angularis It is one of the 20 most closely related species in the genetics family, growing up in Canada, East America, and the western Caribbean. They include both annual and annual species, all with opposite leaves.
The flowers in the seed are very prominent, and are therefore popular on wildflower trips. Each flower has a green tube with a short tube and five long lobes. Corollas are made of the same short tube, and then there are so many attractive lobes, which many people call “flowers,” and depending on the species, these lobes can be white, pink, or purple.
Most species have five corolla feathers, while other species have 10 or 12. After pollen, the egg swells into a clean crust, eventually releasing a number of tiny seeds.
These species grow in different areas, especially in forests and plains, but there are those who prefer to grow in wet cypress savans, or on the beach with brakes or salt marshes.
Until the fall begins with a calm, slow approach, everyone loves it like summer. These plants are often used for farming, and gardeners are curious to know that there are many different species on this market. Some of them do well as members of the Indigenous Garden.
This unique species is a member of the group with five corolla lobes, which are pink. The flowers are fragrant, and about an inch, perhaps a little wider. At the base of each feather is a small yellow or green spot, with an outer red margin. The effect with the five lobes is that the central area (or “eye”) really makes the flowers beautiful, with five yellow stamps and an extended green pistil.
It is about two feet tall and plays with bright green, egg-shaped leaves. Each leaf has a slightly rounded base. The one who easily embraces or “restrains” the trunk. The stems show narrow wings between the walls, at least down to the plant.
These plants grow throughout the southeast. Rights can be seen in fields and on the sidewalks or on the sidewalks, often preferring more sun. You can see these days by adding a pink touch to the landscape where the ancient golden fields and astronauts began to appear.
