Garden Blogger Bloom Day - September 2014

Welcome to our September garden here in Ohio, USA (USDA hardiness Zone 5b). As you are going to see, there are lots of flowers blooming in the garden. This month I will have them organized by color to make it ..well more organized than it actually looks like this time of the year.


Autumn Clematis or Clematis terniflora

  1. Very pretty!
    Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

  2. The rich diversity of your plant material never ceases to amaze and impress me.

    1. You are too nice! I do have a lot of blooms not showing! I am possibly saving them for another day or year to photograph and show.

    2. How cool that you got the second round of blooms out of your 'Boomerang Lilac' you recommend it?

    3. I do not recommend it for its second blooms. I should post a distance picture of this shrub to see how insignificantly small the second bloom is. It gets lost in the fall garden. The size of it and the first bloom are its main attributes. If you have a narrow border and a small garden, and must have a lilac, then this is the one. It only gets to be 3 ft.

  3. Lovely September blooms, and your pictures are fantastic! I'm surprised that your verbena returned, especially after this last awful winter. I plant a couple every year, and though they last a long time, they've never overwintered for me. The bees do love the cosmos, don't they? They're one of my favorite annuals. Happy Bloom Day!

  4. I adore frilly little detailed blooms like the clematis. All your colors are wonderful! I am trying to get my garden ready for planting and I hope I have just part of your colorful success :)

    1. Lucky you Betty! You are in spring season! I am sad to see my garden go to sleep. The thought of winter makes me shiver!

  5. My lilac and clematis's only bloom in spring, that would be nice to have fall bloom too. My Anemones and a Dahlia are still blooming, they are wonderful, aren't they. I'm still bummed out that they changed the Eupatorium name, I also grow Eupatorium (now Conoclinum) coelestinum, hardy ageratum, I thought none of the 5 plants I started last year survived the winter but one did that is by my water bib where it practically sits in water. Your photos are so pretty, I like the toad lily, I've read they are fall bloomers, so they are tempting...
