Welcome to my first Garden Bloggers Bloom Day attempt. I know that I am a newbie in blogging but hang in there! Our garden has been work in progress for 14 years and we have a lot to share!
Here is what is blooming here:
Japanese Anemone after rain -Anemone tomentosa "Robustissima"
Knock out rose "RADraz" on its third round of blooms this season
Hardy Ageratum - Eupatorium cinumoelest- started from seed this spring
and hardy ageratum again surrounding one of the only two mum varieties I grow
Chrysantemum rubellum "Clara Curtis"
Great year for my yellow wax bell (Kirengeshoma koreana). Not only does it have an interesting foliage all season but it then it treats us with this gorgeous drooping yellow flowers
More distant views of the Yellow Waxbell in combination with other great foliage plants
Second year for our Autumn Clematis (Clematis terniflora) who is about to cover the whole gate this year
Plumbago blooming for the first time in our garden (Ceratostigma plumbaginoides)
Another Japanese anemone planted only last fall -Anemone x hybrida "Serenade"
Sedum "Autumn Joy"
Cleomes or Spider Flower that come back from seed every year in various colors as lilac, pink and white
Here is an indoor plant that loves to spend the summer outside: Plectranthus "Mona Lavender" at peak bloom
The only fall blooming aster that I haven't yet killed is Aster "Bluebird" - variety
I love this tall fragrant Bugbane (Cimicifuga racemosa) ..the bees love it too! And is such a long bloomer!
Obedient Plant or Physostegia virginiana below
New Guinea Impatients planted in the garden in the shade
Elephant ears (Colocasia esculenta "Black Corals") surrounded with Sedum cuttings
Boltonia asteroides moved just this spring in a very dry and tough bed by the trees
Last blooms of the Rose Polyantha "Little Pet"
Lily turf or Liriope muscari "Big Blue" . What an incredibly easy plant to grow!
and near by the variegated variety Liriope muscari "Varigata" steals the show
And the September review of blooms will not be complete without the Toad lily (Tricyrtis Formosana)
Japanese Primrose (Primula japonica) confused bloomer (it normally blooms in May)
