Late summer flowers

Trumpet lily.


Great Blue Lobelia, Lobelia siphilitica with crown of buds an interesting feature in its own right.

Callirhoe involucrata, Purple poppy mallow, Winecup, a native wildflower.

Several types of Helenium.

Tricyrtis (Toad Lily) 'Togen'

Ligularia dentata 'Othello'.

Pink version of the Lobelia

Both the Helenium and Toad Lily are good choices for the late summer garden. There are several species of the Tricyrtis that are nice.

Thanks Aunt Debbi/Kurts Mom. And thanks for looking.

Hi Chris,
They had several nice species of Tricyrtis at the wholesale nursery. I wanted to buy 'Togen' for some time now and luckily they had some. The ones we bought were so much nicer than the no name ones we bought 5 years ago. But those plants are still thriving so I shouldn't be so tough on them.

We also bought several Agastache, hoping to attract hummers (birds not SUVS) :) I was surprised that they had a scent. Thanks for your comment.

Lovely post, Ki. Is the ligularia 'Desdemona'? She's a beauty. My variegated toad lily is really a late bloomer but when she does, it'a gift!

Hmmm, I posted a reply Joey but it hasn't appeared. Not the first time that has happened.

A great guess! The Ligularia is Desdemona's husband, 'Othello' ;D

The Toad Lilies we planted many years ago have not formed buds yet. The 'Togen' was a recent acquisition and already had blossoms.


Hi Sheila,
Thank you very much for the comment and visit.

Hi Phillip,
It is a nice apricot color. The trumpet lilies are known for their strong fragrance but this one has only a faint scent. I'm still looking for a L. regale. Thanks for your comment.
