Today was a big day in my garden–busy, busy bees on the sedums and Caryopteris. I love early fall when the garden fades and don’t have many fall bloomers because of this–it’s my garden after all–not one for clients. I didn’t take photos until the end of the day. Here’s the best three.
I bought this at an arboretum plant sale over 15 years ago. It is very slow growing and only gets about 2′ tall when in bloom. It was labeled Cimicifuga simplex…not. I don’t know what the specific variety is…if you do I’d love to know.
The fading blooms of Hydrangea arborecens ‘Annabelle’, Sedum x ‘Autumn Joy’ and almost done Veronica spicata ‘Sunny Border Blue’ make a great combo.
Backlit and fading–this phlox has been blooming for more than six weeks. It was here in the garden when I moved in and I’ve left it untouched.
