Early Fall Garden Tour

Echinacea at Sensible Gardening and Living

Here we sit at mid September in glorious heat and sunny skies. It won’t last forever so I took a long stroll around the garden to see what was still looking great. Many things are still blooming even if they look a bit tired. Other plants however are still really going strong, and the blooms are as fresh as ever. Some plants are on their second round of blooms and others are just beginning. Here are a few shots of what is still looking fantastic in my garden.

FEVERFEW is on it’s second round of blooms. It first bloomed in mid summer and lasted for weeks. I then cut it right back to within 6 inches and it has re-grown and bloomed again.

PETUNIAS are the only annual  I planted in the garden this year. I fell in love with the colour and they have been blooming for weeks.

ASTER FRIKARTII MOENSCH is not your usual aster. Much taller and free flowing it is a gorgeous addition to the garden.

SHOWY STONECROP (SEDUM) is at it’s peak of performance right now. Lots of different varieties in shades of pink and rose, this one is BRILLIANT and has a nice tinge of mauve in it.
