I am breaking one of my rules today – I don’t normally post plants that are actually planted in a garden (normally, what I post from formal gardens are plants I’ve found outside of the actual beds). However, the McLaughlin collection is meant to represent Maine wildflowers, so I’ve made an exception here. Even though these are planted in beds, they are from Maine. (There are a few parking lot finds mixed in here – I still find those everywhere I go.)
