September blooms...

I had to go back to last September's bloom day to check if I had started with Saccharum ravennae . Yes, I did , but it is the biggest  bloom'in bloomer in my garden; and it's getting bigger. I don't understand it ? This is the leanest, meanest soil in the garden .  The Nicotiana sylvestris here is huge as well , being from the Andes , maybe it likes this rough ground.

Asters, Asters, Asters...

I didn't keep the tag for this beautiful Agastache . Mine don't usually survive the winter , This one did and a few other ! 

This grass was just  a mere sprig  I pulled out of a Panicum grass pot that I had  bought a few years ago. I planted it  out along the edge of the path , now I can just squeeze through . Someone needs to shift over.

I planted a few of these creamy yellow Coreopsis this year, this could be 'big bang full moon' ; and it has been a big bang , booming all summer long

Salvia muellerii , a sweet one , that I hope is hardier than S Greggii , which I loved and lost last year.
