Mid September at the Farm – Part 1

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

Alstroemeria

Still hanging on with texture and colour…

Gentians

Verbena bonariensis

and roses too.

Rose Marie

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.

CaryopterisWhite 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 Pamina

Anemone ‘Honorine Jobert’

Cimicifugas are blooming handsomly.

But the overall mood here is of yellow.

Coreopsis ‘lightning flash’

Kirengeshoma palmata

Goldenrod around the pond edges

Rudbeckia goldsturm

Rudbeckia triloba

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.)

    I’ve got to try Caryopteris ‘White Surprise’ again. Mine never made it through the first winter. Monique’s faded away after a couple of seasons too. Maybe you just have the magic touch. Yes after scrolling through the gallery I believe that is definitely the case.

  2. wowzer! things are looking really wonderful there Marie. Love Caryopteris so much. I’d never had any luck with them but I never gave them a really good location. I’m planning for some in the front gardens as they get expanded.
