You know it is fall when the colchicum’s are in bloom. One day they just appear in the garden without any warning. I have heard them called bare ladies because they have no foliage at this time of the year. They are a wonderful surprise.
In the front garden I have a red aster. The tag has disappeared so I can not tell you its cultivar. Asters come in many colours. It forms a good size clump. This one is drought tolerant.
A few weeks ago I posted Miscanthus sinensis “Summer Solstice. This one is a relative of that called Miscanthus sinensi ’Huron Sunrise’. They both have beautiful pink plumes that turn a white colour over the winter and hold their shape even though the snow piles up around them.
Cosmos ‘Bon Bon’ threw us another bloom. If your order flower seeds try Renee’s Garden Seeds. I grew some mesclan seeds from Renee’s in a container this year. I wish I could tell you they were delicious but the ground hog had lunch on them before I got any.
Well, this is my offering today for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. Visit MayDreamsGardens for more delights from the garden. Happy Gardening. Valerie
