How I love a garden in the Fall! I love the grasses and asters, the light, the colors. Here are some shots on the first day of October.
I think this is my favorite ornamental grass… Panicum Cheyenne Sky
Molinia Caerulea variegata
Love Gentians. Can’t beat their color!
Salvia Black and Blue blends with everything. I am hoping it lasts through winter outdoors in this climate. We’ll see.
This orange Wallflower has been blooming since early spring. Truly a non-stop plant!
Witch Hazels turn a lovely yellow at this time of year. If you look carefully, they have buds already.
Astrantia is giving us a second bloom.
In the holding bed are many part shade plants waiting for their permanent homes. Here are Pulmonaria, Tiarella, Ligularia…
We are still deciding what bulbs will be planted near the new bench.
Some of the ferns may go…or not. Decisions, decisions…
Enjoying the Forest Pansy showing off its colors.
Fun color, but not yet Christmas!
Next year I will prune this aster way back at the end of June.
I love this Miscanthus…whichever one it is!
This young Loropetalum is blooming again. It has done well, better than I expected!There is still garden work to be done before a winter rest.
