At this time of year we are seeing both the lingering blooms which surprise us as well as the more typical fall plants. All are treats!
Among the flowers that surprise me for their long period of bloom are the Astrantias. They are subtle blooms that force a close inspection! I think next year I’d like to add some deeper coloured ones, perhaps ‘Ruby Wedding’.
The crocosmia also continues to show off these days.
As well, the Spigelia Marilandica.
Leptodermis oblonga is still flowering.
We continue to have scented Hostas
Still hanging on with texture and colour…
and roses too.
sweet little roses grown by a friend
Several delphiniums are reblooming after having been cut back
And here, the very last Anemonopsis macrophylla of the season
I am surprised by the changes toward the real start of the Fall garden. I am a big fan of asters of all kinds, cultivated and wild.
Caryopteris ‘White Surprise is in full swing.
Caryopteris ‘Snow Fairy’ has more subtle blooms which appear at about the same time.
Many of the hydrangeas are beginning to change colour as well with hints of pink.
The sedums are also turning to new colours.
There are several kinds of Fall Anemones blooming.
Anemone hupehensis ‘Queen Charlotte’
Anemone ‘Honorine Jobert’
Cimicifugas are blooming handsomly.
But the overall mood here is of yellow.
Coreopsis ‘lightning flash’
Goldenrod around the pond edges
Soon the Solidago ‘fireworks’ will be aglow.
(My computer decided to post this earlier than I intended! Perhaps a good thing as it may be in the shop to have more memory added tomorrow! I wish they could give me additional memory as well! There will be updates soon.)
