Must lead off with something that has me very excited because it is blooming for the very first time. I’m going to call this my favorite plant in the garden right now and link to Danger Garden.
Brand new plants are pretty exciting too. The Cigar Flower came from HPSO’s Plant Fest last weekend by way of Dancing Oaks Nursery. Also from that source: Kniphofia thomsonii and Epilobium (Zauschneria) canum.
Northern Sea Oats has begun to take on a burnished look that will only get better as time goes on.
‘Blonde Ambition’ is batting her eyelashes in my garden for the first time this year.
Persicaria Lance Corporal was invited into the woodland to show off his chevrons. A bonus came along with him in the form of long stems of teensy red flowers that pop when they catch the light.
Speaking of popping, the goldenrod is earning its name. I always look forward to these late season fireworks.
I have a soft spot for things grown successfully from seed. Plus, I’ve never seen this particular Nicotiana for sale in a nursery.
Nothing unique about the Cosmos, but growing these from seed means that I can have lots of them.
I’ll stop there, even though there’s plenty more going on. If you’re wanting more floral fun, you will find it at (May Dreams Gardens), where Carol hosts bloom Day on the 15th of each month. Thanks, Carol.
