Purple, bronze with a dab of yellow and maybe a pinch of pink....

It has been threatening a downpour all day, and just after I snapped this pic, it came. Lucky for this new planting. I've jumbled all the greety ones together, to make watering less of a chore. So, here they all are on the shadyside of the Acacia pravissima . And what alot of plants : from top right is Cimicifuga , ' black negligee'  Verbena bonariensis, Fillpendula rubra and a " I didn't plant you Verbascum. Below that on the right a Allium Christopii, Some sort of fern. On the left Brunnera 'Looking glass. The dab of yellow , Saruma Henryi . Bottom right a pinch of pale pinky white Dianthus and the big bronze Ligularia 'Brett -Marie- Crawford'. And if you peek between the plants you'll find Geranium 'Margaret Wison' ,  a selfseeded cosmos, dasies, parsley, and a " I like where you have appeared but  I can't remember planting you" plant . I just love this area...

This is the unknown one, lovely, but I've not a clue. Reminds me of a raspberry.

  1. That is a lovely grouping of plants. And such big, non-holey leaves on your Ligularia. Hope you find out your unknown plant, that's a cool flower.
