Garden Bloggers Bloom Day -- September 2013

It's Garden Bloggers Bloom Day! There aren't a lot of plants flowering right now, everything seems to be powering down. But here's what ongoing in my garden that I haven't already posted about recently.


Cimicifuga? Actaea? I've lost track -- but the bees love it!

Coreopsis 'Red Shift'

Tricyrtis formosa



Caryopteris x clandonensis

Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Worcester Gold' with a more chartreuse leaf

Agastache 'Acapulco Orange' (I think)

Coreopsis Big Bang Series in the gravel garden

Ornamental Oregano and black Mondo grass

Ornamental Oregano

Aloe glauca

Calendula officinalis (from a Solar Flashback mix, but it looks rather ordinary)

With Coleus 'Marooned'

My new Bougainvillea, bought at WeHop during the Kitsap Peninsula nursery romp

My Abutilon has been pumping out flowers non-stop for the entire spring and summer.

 Are the seedheads of grasses considered flowers? Well, I'm including them here.

Japanese Forest Grass (Hakonechloa macra)

Chasmanthium latifolium in morning light

Big Bluestem (Andropogon gerardii)

'Blonde Ambition' grama grass (Bouteloua gracilis)
