Another extremely useful vase plant for July has been the Hypericum Hypearls series by Green Leaf. I have at least four different cultivars planted in moist, semi-shade that all have provided me with lovely foliage and berries to complement just about any flower I choose to cut for a vase.

The second photo is of the very same mystery coneflower which might be 'Raspberry Truffle'. This plant IS a cultivar, not a reverted species. I don't have any of the non-hybrid species in my garden. The photo was taken on July 20. I wonder if the difference in color could be chalked up to temperature fluctuations, but first I'd really love to know which plant I'm enjoying so much.
