Bloom Day for September

Bloom Day for September

September 15th was Garden Blogger’s Bloomday, a day I spent dealing with with truck problems which prevented me from posting in time. Now, it’s a couple of days late, but what the heck, I went to all this trouble so you might as well enjoy the show. Some of the pictures below are from our yard, some are from the meadow we are coaxing along, and some are from our nursery area, but regardless, whether they’re ours, mother nature’s, or are waiting for someone else’s yard to call home, they still brighten my day. I hope they brighten yours also!

Click on each picture for a closer look at each these beauties!
Sedum cauticola

Sedum cauticola has performed well for us on our deck in this old cedar planter.

Sedum 'Matrona'
Sedum ‘Matrona’ is well on its way from pink to red and eventually russet in color.
Boltonia asteroides 'Snowbank'
Boltonia asteroides ‘Snowbank’ is just beginning to bloom. Next week this Bolton’s Aster will be covered with white blossoms.
Solidago
Goldenrod has been keeping the meadow buzzing for about two months.
Rudbeckia 'Henry Eilers'
Rudbeckia ‘Henry Eilers’, a very unique petal.
Lobelia cardinalis

Eupatorium perfoliatum
Eupatorium perfoliatum – This Boneset is doing well at the edge of the meadow.
Cimicifuga 'Pink Spike'
A favorite of mine! Cimicifuga simplex ‘Pink Spike’. Dark foliage and tall pink tinted flowers are a dramatic addition to the shade border.

Chelone obliqua – Pink Turtleheads, need I say more?
Aster divaricatus
The white Wood Aster (Aster divaricatus) has been thriving on te edge of our woods for years.

  1. Hi Scott, I love your plant selection – Lobelia, Chelone, Eupatorium, etc. Isn’t it a blessing to live by a meadow and watch the natives or analogs do their thing? Thanks for sharing! Lynn

  2. Hi Scott!
    Great Bloom Day Post. I guess our Post Bloom Day Post plan will have to wait for a while longer now that you and I are back on top of things. 🙂

  3. Hi Scott! Thanks for showing several plants that were unknown to me. I like the white wood aster and Cimicifuga simplex the most. Hmm, should I start a white garden?

    1. Your welcome Tatyana. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. A white garden would be beautiful, and would add interest during the evening hours also. Nice idea!

      Scott
