Plants I love.......

I've worked hard to have color all year round in my garden. Late summer is when some of my plants really come into their own. Here are some of my favorite late summer bloomers:
I love scented plants and especially this amazing four o'clocks which open at dusk! The fragrance is wonderful and it is a real thrill to see the plants open...........

Japanese anemones: The foliage is disease resistant, japanese beetles don't attack this plant and it is wonderful to have a late blooming flower. My farvorite are the pink but I have white as well.
There are more late bloomers I love too but I will post them later this week! For now, I am off to prepare for my granddaughter who should be arriving soon!

Mom and I were just talking today about how much we love flowers. I'm hopeless at growing them so I try to keep a flowering plant or two around the house and just replace them then I kill them off.

Your garden looks lovely.
