I've been waiting like, for-everrr for my Climbing Aster (Ampelaster carolinianus) to bloom. It's had buds for like, two months and now, finally one of those buds popped open. Here we go! Next spring I'm going to move the plant to a full-sun location and hope it will bloom earlier.
Other late-fall bloomers are this Mexican Orange (Choisya ternata).
|Here it is with Nandina, Acanthus and ferns.|
|A bit out of focus, but you get the idea.|
|Borage (Borago officinalis)|
|Stachys officinalis 'Pink Cotton Candy'|
|Stachys 'Lilac Falls'|
And here are two of the several still-blooming Fuchsias.
|The last blossom on Fuchsia 'Flash'|
And finally, two wide shots of the garden to illustrate how messy everything is.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
