This late June view of the Friends of the Arboretum Terrace garden includes (from left to right) blazing star (_Liatris pycnostachya_) just beginning to bloom. White Culverâs root (_Veronicastrum virginicum_), the tan seed heads of blue-joint grass (_Calamagrostis canadensis_) and Joe-pye weed (_Eutrochium maculatum_) with branched pink flower heads are shown.  Southern blue-flag iris (Iris virginica), grass-leaved goldenrod (_Euthamia graminifolia_) and prairie dropseed (_Sporobolus heterolepis_) are still in vegetative condition, shown at right in this photo.
