Bloom Day for September!

Bloom Day for September!

September 15th already! The leaves are starting to turn here and there’s a chill in the air. It’s all a little early for us, and I’m afraid the drought we’ve been experiencing is going to dull the autumn color. But fear not, for it’s Bloom Day, and there are many beautiful things to see in the meadow and the nursery. So without further ado, may I present the floral faces from my garden!

Remember to click on the photos for a closer look!

A few escapees from the bird feeder have germinated and are blossoming!
Alliums, the only survivor in the veggie garden
The Boltonia is just hitting it's stride!
My favorite Aster 'Alma Poetschke'
Pink Turtleheads look great against the Aster in the background!
Helenium 'Mardi Gras'
Coreopsis 'Full Moon'
Vernonia, one of the great natives of our area!
Lobelia is still blooming along!
Sedum 'Matrona'
Panicum 'Northwind" backlit by the setting sun!

Not a blossom, but Blue Princess Holly is dazzling!

The block of Boltonia backs up to our meadow... Wow!
Even those areas that have gotten away from us, are making their case!

    1. I wait all season for the Vernonia to bloom Gayle. The picture is from the nursery and does not capture the purple blue of the blossoms very well. We also have some naturally occurring in the meadow that are a full seven feet tall!

      Thanks for commenting!

  1. Great blooms…what a nice variety! I have H. ‘Mardis Gras’ too, do you find the bloom coloring increditly variable? Last year I’d swear it was more orange with yellow picottee edging, this year, it’s mostly yellow with a bit of orange here and there…wassup with that! 🙂

    1. Hi Scott! Mardi Gras is a great plant, and yes the blossoms do vary in color. Often, during the same season and at the same time, some blooms mostly yellow, while others orange-red with a yellow margin. Makes for a very interesting show. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
