I thought the 15th was today, Sunday but it was yesterday. I was busy all weekend so this is a very late post but better late than never. I'll add the names of the plants when I have more time.
Anemone 'Prince Henry or 'Prinz Heinrich'. New to our garden. Looks similar to A. 'Party Dress' but with a darker hue of pink. I like this one better than 'Party Dress' because it stands on thicker stems and doesn't fall over as easily. I also like the deeper color.
Anemone 'Max Vogel'. This is also a new introduction to our garden. This was a disappointment with small very light pink flowers. Maybe it will do better next year.
Anemone 'Andrea Atkinson'. Looks similar to the very popular A. 'Honorine Jobert' but the flower doesn't seem to be as large. The plant is not as vigorous either. This is blooming for the first time also so maybe it will do better next year.
Two photos above of A. 'Honorine Jobert' the first Anemone we planted in our garden which at one time I tried to eradicate but luckily was unsuccessful in doing so. We have come to love this vigorous and lovely windflower.
Japanese Anemone, hupehensis. This is the second anemone we planted and it has turned out to be a very lovely prolific bloomer.
Variegated Liriope. Technically not in bloom but the buds on the flower stalk still look quite lovely.
Seven Sons tree Heptacodium miconioides a rather rare and unusual small tree or large shrub with beautiful fragrant flowers. Here's a site
that has more information about this unusual tree.
A yellow form of Crocosmia which along with a couple of the red flowered ones amazingly survived the winter in ground.
Angelonia angustifolia, this was a $1 sale plant and has turned out to be a great buy.
Singapore Plumeria/frangipani. This plant has been steadily blooming for most of the summer, wafting it's fragrance near our back entrance.
Two photos of Clematis paniculata or ternifolia. Some say it has a wonderful scent but ours has no perfume, just a musty pollen smell when you stick your nose right up to the flowers. Very pretty though, with mounds of flowers covering the plant.
Hydrangea paniculata 'Quick Fire' intermediate stage. Supposedly the panicles will turn a bright red but at this stage it's not any redder than our regular H. paniculata 'Grandiflora'
Anemone 'Party Dress'. This is also new to our garden. The stems tend to be thin so the flowers flop over. I'm hoping it will grow more vigorously next year and won't need staking. I hate plants that need staking.
Another group of A. huphensis Japanese Anemome growing amongst some Hakonechloa macra ‘All Gold’ grass which has turned more green than yellow in all the shade and a 'Katsura' Japanese maple. This was newly planted so it looks very nice close to the ground. I wish the propagators would create dwarf versions of anemones but I haven't come across any.
Another differently colored Angelonia.
Another photo of A. 'Prince Henry'
Two photos of my favorite Anemone. This is A. 'Whirlwind' coyly peeking out from the foilage.
Hydrangea paniculata 'Grandifolia'. The panicles are turning quickly to a nice dusky deep red.
The old standby impatiens and a aster doing the "job" between perennial flowerings.
And last but not least Lobelia erinus 'Crystal Palace' which I grew from seed this spring and transplanted them out into the garden about a month ago for some fall color.
