Garden Bloggers Bloomday for September 2014
September 15th, we're down to the last full week of summer. It's been a good one, hot and sunny, but of course all too fast. It's time for a look at what's blooming as autumn is knocking at the door, to see the full report from blogs around the world visit May Dreams Gardens.
The canna's are going strong. It's a pity I'm unable to tell you what any of them are...
This is Callistemon citrinus, it's not especially hardy but went in the ground this spring. Time will tell...
This silly thing, Abutilon 'Red Tiger', has grown and grown and grown, but not bloomed much. Right now it's finally got 4 flowers and half a dozen buds. It must have realized I was eyeing it's spot and thinking about what I'd plant there when I got rid of it.
Clematis tibetana var. vernayi
And the fully opened bloom of last week's "favorite" Colocasia fontanesii...
The Crocosmia 'Orangeade' just keeps on pushing out new flowers, I love this plant!
There were three blooms on the Hedychium 'Tara' this year, this the last one.
The spaced themselves out nicely, I've been enjoying them for 3 weeks.
Passiflora 'Sunburst' is a riot of blooms right now. My first go at rooting cuttings failed miserably. I'll try again.
Grevillea 'Peaches and Cream'
Mahonia fortunei 'Curlyque'
Hibiscus syriacus 'Red Heart'
Sedum 'Autumn Joy'
Schefflera brevipedunculata, on it's third round of blooms.
The very unattractive buds/blooms/seed heads of Senecio mandraliscae.
And finally Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola'...enjoy your last week of summer!
