This is bee balm with a butterfly. When I went to the nursery, I asked for perennial plants that bees and butterflies would like.
This mimosa tree looks hazy, but it's because it was raining when Larry took the picture. Mimosa trees grow wild, but Larry found this one in our woods and transplanted it. It is bracketed on each side with crepe myrtles. The color is a little darker pink than the mimosa.
We also have blooming at this time roses, day lilies, clematis, and the monkey grass is beginning to bloom. The lavender plants are blooming, too.
