Garden Bloggers Bloom Day for September
Gardener Blogger's Bloom Day, hosted by May Dreams Gardens, is the place to see what is blooming in gardens across the United States. Check out the blog for a list of links.
In the meantime, here are some of the flowers in our garden this month...
|Goldenrod (Solidago 'Fireworks') is a sure sign that the season is changing.|
|Crape Myrtle 'Dynamite' finally beginning to bloom.|
|Aster dumosis 'Wood's Purple' and Mexican Feather Grass (Nassella tenuissima)|
|Rudbeckia 'Goldstrum' still going strong, laughing at the drought, the sun and the heat.|
|California Fuchsia (Zauschneria septentrionalis 'Select Mattole'|
|Veronica longifolia 'Marietta'|
|Hybrid Musk Rose 'Buff Beauty' and Abelia 'Frances Mason'|
|Portulaca (Moss Rose), probably our most successful annual. We grow it in pots, in the ground, everywhere!|
|Coreopsis 'Big Bang Star Cluster'|
|Climbing Rose 'Don Juan' off to a slow, slow start and just now beginning to bloom. I suspect there may be a problem with the plant. I have already had to remove two canes that looked diseased. The blooms are so seductive.|
|Compare to 'Double Delight', a rose that don't stop blooming.|
The blooms on the Pineapple Lily (Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgundy') are dwindling
but I love that foliage.
|Purple Fountain Grass (Pennisetum setaceum) and Rose 'Emma Hamilton'|
|Sourwood Tree (Oxydendrum) with Pennisetum orientale 'Karley Rose' in the morning sunshine following a rainy night.|
|An Anenome that I do not recall planting.|
|Saxifrage (Saxifraga fortunei 'Magenta')|
Japanese Shrub Mint (Leucosceptrum Japonicum 'Golden Angel')
Santa Barbara Daisy (Erigeron karvinskianus 'Profusion')
