Herbaceous plants with pink flowers

A "wildflower" simply refers to a flowering plant growing without the aid of human cultivation. Scientists do not normally use the term "wildflower". Instead, dividing herbaceous flowering plants into native, introduced, and naturalized species. Some examples of flowering plant species native to Kentucky are shown below.

Goldenrod is the common name for the flowering plant pictured above. This perennial, one of about 100 related species, typically blooms in the autumn and is adaptable to a variety of habitats. It will grow and flourish on flat or hilly land, and under the cover of woods or in open meadows. It grows from 1 to 7 feet, (30 cm to 2 meters). Common throughout the state, the goldenrod was adopted as the Kentucky State Flower in 1926.


What do you grow...and what are your experiences

Currently I am growing a few species of Grevillea (from large bushy varieties to the creeping kinds - about 5 species total) all are doing fine and thriving. And have full sun location.
I'm also growing Westeringia, Eriostemon and Correa.
the westeringia are doing well, establishing themselves (haven't flowered much yet), the correa were slow to take off..but are healthy and thriving now.
the eriostemon (one of the greatest plants i've ever grown) is a pineapple-y scented hardy herbaceous upright bush plant that is covered with small white flowers most of the year

Anise or Aniseed, less commonly anís (stressed on the second syllable) (Pimpinella anisum), is a flowering plant in the family Apiaceae, native to the eastern Mediterranean region and southwest Asia. It is a herbaceous annual plant growing to 1m tall. The leaves at the base of the plant are simple, 2-5 cm long and shallowly lobed, while leaves higher on the stems are feathery pinnate, divided into numerous leaflets. The flowers are white, 3 mm diameter, produced in dense umbels. The fruit is an oblong dry schizocarp, 3-5 mm long.
Pimpinella species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species, including the lime-speck pug and wormwood pug.

Shallow rooted annual and perennial herbaceous plants can be planted closer to the drain fields since they do not have invasive roots. Turfgrass can be grown over the drain field and is beneficial since it helps hold the soil in place.
