    Can you tell me what the white feathery flowering bush that is blooming now alongside the roads with the goldenrod? There seems to be much more this year.

      Thank you. I googled it and it is similar though the white flowers are more like an astilbe than dandelion puff. Maybe that will come later?

      I can send you Esperanza seeds. It might be a little late for starting Esperanza this year but next year you can start it off early if this year’s bunch don’t take.

I look forward to comments. Spam is captured and fried.
