What’s blooming now?

The garden is still looking good.  The nights are getting cooler again and it’s starting to feel like Fall.  Ok, not every day.  It was 90 a couple of days ago but soon the air will be cool and the sun will start pulling away.  Every time we meet up we all exclaim “wow, it looks so good”.  It’s amazing what the right soil, right plants, some air, water and light will do.  Right now there are lots of Cone Flowers, Clematis, Agastache and Hyssop blooming.  Some of the Ice Plants are spent but there are still a couple of varieties that are still blooming.  The evergreens and bushes and grass always add year round interest.  The foliage from the plants that are finished blooming also keep interest in the garden.  The variegated foliage is always nice as it adds interest whether it’s blooming or not.  Here’s a  tour of what is in bloom now:

Speaking of taking a tour.  If you visit our garden, make sure you check in the kiosk for a Plant List of everything in our garden.  If there is something you like you can check if on your list so you can remember what it is that you like, what is blooming when, or what you can’t live without in your garden.  It’s also a good list for when you visit the nursery and some things are by common name and some are by scientific name.  The list has both names so you will always be able to find the plant you want.  Remember to mark if you found it in the sun or shade.  Come on down and check it out.
