The Courtyard of the Beltsville Library looking north by northwest
So far I have been free to plant whatever I choose so, of course there are a goodly number of root-hardy tropicals that won't make much of a show for a month or six weeks. For example, Cestrum auranticum, Jacobinia carnea, Hedychium coronarium, H. coccineum, Musa basjoo, and no doubt some I've forgotten.
There are quite a few natives including Monarda spp, Phlox spp., Celastrus scandens, Morella, Fothergilla, Rhapidophyllum hystrix (near native), Lonicera sempervirens, Campsis radicans, ... .
