I've been making a somewhat half-hearted attempt at organizing umpteen billion photos I took of the garden this year. What's enjoyable about this otherwise mundane process is being able to see all of my favorite plants again. Here are a few newbies that surprised me with how wonderful they were.
|I think this is Allium nutans. |
It was just green leaves when I bought it at a garden club plant sale
and the tag said it was a dwarf Agapanthus. I was happy to see that bees found it!
|Also on the subject of purple, Clematis x triternata 'Rubromarginata'|
Long-blooming, fragrant, pretty... what's not to love?
|Of the new Sedums purchased this year is this beauty.|
I think it's
I love how it's worming around in this container.
|My new Fatsia japonica 'Spider's Web' made me very happy |
even it is still on the small side.
|My Colocasia or Elephant Ear tubers took their sweet time leafing out|
but wowzers, did they ever look perty once they did!
|I've had lots of hardy Lobelia through the years. |
This one, purchased last year did really well again this year.
|And because the red one did so well, I bought a bunch of pink ones too.|
Dang those flowers are gorgeous!
|My Desert Four O'Clocks bloomed happily for me this year.|
I've got them in a pot with fast-draining soil so hopefully they can handle the wet winter.
|I grew this tender Alternanthera 'Brazillian Red Hots' with a red-flowered NOID hardy Fuchsia.|
Gorgeous all summer. I really should go out and dig it up before the cold weather kills it.
I trust you all are enjoying your fall gardens too.
