Out front Sedum Maestro is attracting a lot of attention from passersby – of the bumble bee variety.
The Cardinal Climber has reached its tendrils up to the of the porch lattice and is finally in bloom. Sadly, the hummingbirds have already moved on, but maybe those on their journey from further up north will chance upon its blooms.
In the butterfly garden Autumn Joy has taken the stage behind the blooms of Switch Grass ‘Dallas Blues’ whose blades will turn a beautiful gold color come the winter snows.
In the pollinator garden the Cosmos and Zinnias are still blooming in full force and are frequently visited by bees and Monarchs.
In the new woodland edge border, asters left wild are a cloud of tiny white blooms and new spontaneous, irresistible purchase Little Lemon golden rod seems to be a hit.
Along the drive, more Switch Grass but cross Ruby Ribbons in full bloom and whose blade tips are just beginning to turn red. The obedient plant is always abuzz with bees and Monarchs. Another spontaneous purchase Clematis ‘Comtesse De Bouchard,’ and one I do not regret. She has not stopped blooming since being planted.
An all time favorite just added this year is Coreopsis Moonbeam. And a first for me – my Moonflower is in bloom. Each morning I am greeted with another full moon at least 6″ across.
