    Oh my goodness how lush looking. Right now my garden is more than a bit out of control but I will go looking to see what I can find.

    In the picture two above here - with the hibiscus in flower, what is the low white flower with flower stalks that look like miniature veronicastrums?

    Physostegia Virginiana 'Vivid'


    Celosia


    Sorry, I haven't learned to rotate these photos. But, sure enjoying color in Southside Virginia.

    Babs thank you...looking forward to your return.

    Lol Woody yes it’s Veronica ‘white wands’ and it’s puny little rebloom.

    Harold thanks for sharing, I love your colors too!

  • woodyoak zone 5 southern Ont., Canada

    GardenHo - from a quick internet search on that name, it looks like it could be a very vigorous grower/spreader...? I gave up on the regular blue Veronicas years ago because they seeded around too much. Does this one do that?

  • GardenHo_MI_Z5

    Woody I have not had that problem. The ones that are happiest have increased in size but have never reseeded on me.

    Just to note, my blues ones have not reseeded either.....


    Today I added some badly needed color to the bed pictured above of the center slope..

    ..additions are variegated Iris and some of the shorter phlox.

    Sept 4: Veronica 'Royal Rembrandt'. With deadheading, still blooming.


    Rest today: Phlox paniculata 'Nora Leigh', at least here, is such a useful plant. It provides colour and form from late summer into early fall and the foliage remains attractive through much of the fall.


    Heleniums and 'Nora Leigh'.


    Dahlias, annual fillers for small spaces,

    Your gardens really do look lush GardenHo! Very nice Harold & SB! I should get that P. p. "Nora Leigh'.

    I have quite a bit blooming. Strange weather this year and finally getting some rain, too late for many plants but better late than never which was the story this year.

    Anemone 'Robustissima' & Sanguisorba officinalis 'Tanna'

    Helenium 'Loydster Weick' (not it's best year) & Helianthus 'Lemon Queen'

    From further back with Lobelia siphilitica & Chasmanthium latifolium

    E. 'Gateway' with 2 Miscanthus. Coreopsis 'Moonbeam' still blooming in the background.

    Vernonia c. 'Mammuth'

    Gentian septemfida var. lagodechiana. I am doing clean up and editing in this area.

    Primula having it's sparser fall bloom period.

    C. 'Clara Curtis'

    Wow peren...You sure do have a lot blooming! Love the large swaths, Thanks for sharing.

  • Heruga (6b/7a NJ)

    My unknown giant pennisetum I bought last year labeled as miscanthus sinensis ‘adagio’ and obviously not the case. Also liriope muscari, and perilla frutescens var. crispa(Shiso) jungle flowering but very ‘unshowy’. Blossoms don’t all open at the same time. Good contrast with my self seeded agastache rugosa though, all first year flowering.

  • rouge21_gw (CDN Z6)

    Love the large swaths


    Very envious also. For example I can only imagine having all that "Tanna".. One or two of those plant...no big deal; but all yours together...amazing.

  • peren.all Zone 5a Ontario Canada

    Thank GardenHo and rouge! I have lots more blooming too, will add more pics later.

    rouge that is 3 plants of 'Tanna'. It is truly a favorite, it has been blooming for months.

    A friend had given me this sedum

    about four years ago and it struggled in my stone planter so I moved it to a flower pot with much better soil and it really took off this year. I really love the darker color and the translucent leaves. It is a big departure from the Autumn Joy which I grow. Does anyone know the name of this variety?

    Quite tall: Chrysanthemum serotinum (Sept 8).

    Beautiful flower gardens everyone. Harold that sedum is just awesome.

  • Heruga (6b/7a NJ)

    This is my hylotlephium erythrostictum ‘frosty morn‘, or sedum should I say. Not too colorful from a distance but upon a closer look you see the small pinks

  • NHBabs z4b-5a NH

    Pinky Winky Hydrangea paniculata always looks better up close this time of year since from a distance the color tends to fade somewhat to a rusty, less intense pink. Sorry the first and third photos are turned sideways. Tablet and cell phone photos used to right themselves on Houzz but no longer do.




    H.p. Quickfire will keep this intense pink until frost.



    Kirengeshoma palmata Is in a bed where the voles have eaten everything not protected by buried protective cages, so it looks fairly sparse right now.

    Just adding my small Rose of Sharon, wish I remembered the name.

  • Marie Tulin

    Sherry, if it is only about 5 feet, if might be Lil'Kim

  • sherrygirl zone5 N il

    Thanks Marie! I had to check your suggestion because I remembered it maxing out at 3-4 feet. We are both right! It is Lil Kim and my memory of its mature size was right!

    Sherry

  • GardenHo_MI_Z5

    Sherry....Pretty ROS. I don’t think I’ve seen that colour before.

    Here is my gifted ‘blue chiffon’... it’s a beautiful/unusual color.

    I took a shot today in the garden... Quickfire hydrangea and Rozanne geranium...still going strong with new mum.

  • mazerolm_3a

    GardenHo: that last picture is magazine worthy!

  • GardenHo_MI_Z5

    Maz, thank you!

  • violetsnapdragon

    I love the rosy sedums with the hakone grass. Wish one could comment directly under the photos!
