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.
