We finally had a significant rainfall last night and the garden is refreshed and blooming.
I was very surprised this morning to see the columbine blooming again!
'Fragrant Angel' coneflowers have bloomed all summer. They are being moved to a sunnier spot this fall to help stop the flop!
I bought a six pack impatiens for 50 cents in July to fill in a big empty spot. They are still small but very cheerful.
'Chocolate' eupatorium has started to bloom but won't reach its peak until fall.
I love the soft orange of this agastache.
Rudbeckia fulgida 'Deamii' - This is a slightly improved variety of the native roadside wildlflower that blooms across the southeast.
Asclepias tuberosa - Orange butterfly weed is significantly more heat and drought resistant that other types of milkweed.
'Maraschino' salvia and 'Blue Fortune' agastache
(The highly unattractive wire grid by the wooden fence keeps my dogs from slipping through the fence, or at least from getting stuck while trying to go exploring.)
A new flush of blooms on the 'Roguchi' clematis
'Sceptre d'Isle' is a David Austin rose that is incredibly disease resistant and thrives with a bit of afternoon shade from the neighboring Rose of Sharon.
I love the soft, fuzzy red flowers of chenille plant.
Crepe myrtles bloom for several months starting in mid-summer in the upper South. If the fall days are warm and the nights cool, they have gorgeous autumn foliage.
These 'Nicky' phlox just can't compete with the enormous 'Delta Snow' phlox nearby and are headed to a different part of the garden this fall.
