A few photos of the summer garden.
I’m out in the garden deadheading plants and staking the delphiniums that were pummeled by the heavy rains yesterday. Great time to weed too while the ground is soft.
The first Pixie Perennials Plant Sale and Gift Boutique of 2015!
Before you cut down your garden, decide which plants should be saved to use in decorating your window boxes, flowerpots, or any area you want to have a fall festive feel.
For the window boxes I use Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’, Astilbes, pods from Belamcanda, Hakoneckloa leaves, Agastache ‘Blue Fortune’ flowers, Callicarpa dichotoma ‘Early Amethyst’, Hosta pods, Anemone japonica stems, Rudbeckia ‘Goldstrum’, Hydrangea invincible spirit, and Cornus sericea ‘Farrow’ ARCTIC FIRE.
Magical! And just think, all from the garden.
There are many perennials that continue to enhance the garden from late summer into early fall. Your garden can still look great after July, if you choose the right plants when creating your design. The photos below illustrate color is possible in August and September. As additional fall blooming perennials put on their show I will add photos to the gallery. Please check back next week to see what else is flowering. Enjoy the Labor Day weekend!
