What's that plant?
« on: July 08, 2020, 05:19:43 PM »
I have a section of the yard where I scatter wild flower seeds.  The bees love it and that's the main reason I leave it that way.  But I have no idea what most of the flowers are.  So that's the reason for this thread, to try  to identify some of the flowers.

This first one looks like it may be bee balm, but I'm not sure.  Can anyone tell if I'm right about that?





Someone told me that this other might be milkweed.

Based on a picture of bee balm seed that I have, the first looks like bee balm.
