I’m not sure what this pretty little flowering plant is. My Peterson guide suggests it might be Wild Bergamot (monarda fistulosa), but the leaves don’t match the example in the book. The leaves are toothed, but they appear to be alternate rather than opposite on the stem.
This is a wild thing. It is not one that L and planted. I’m not sure where I was when I took the picture, but I suspect I was near the lake in the area that gets plenty of sun. It was a pleasant discovery where ever it was found.
I know where the flower below was found. I took this photo on the Wildflower Island, but I can’t find a match for it in my Peterson guide or my old copy of Missouri Wildflowers. Perhaps it is a sire of the canister of seeds we had heedlessly scattered on the island before our realization that we would cultivate only native plants at Roundrock.
