Seedhead Sunday

Scott at Rhone Street Gardens had the idea of posting a picture of seedheads on every Sunday. The inspiration was well-timed, as fall and winter are the seasons for seedheads in the garden. I was struck by some of the seedheads  I saw in the garden this afternoon, so I’ve decided to shamelessly imitate Scott’s idea.

Let’s start with some Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum). What more can I say about this native grass? It is a monarch among grasses.

One more picture of the Switchgrass.

And now, for something completely different: Joe Pye Weed (Eutrochium maculatum).

Finally, let’s conclude with some Ironweed (Vernonia fasciculata).

That’s all for now. Have a great week!

  1. Lovely! In my early days of gardening, I was like an immature teen, thinking only blooms were beautiful. But I’ve come to appreciate the beauty of seedheads and especially enjoy them covered in snow–not that I am wishing for snow yet!! Beautiful photo of the switchgrass.
