After a very hot last few weeks, the rain has finally arrived. Although the weather was fabulous, the garden did suffer. Many plants flowered and went over a lot faster than usual. Now is a good time to inject the garden with some late summer colour.
Here are a few plants to consider:
Grasses are looking fab.
Rudbeckia is coming into flower.
Agapanthus still have lots of life in them yet.
Hebes adding great colour
Artemesia brighten dark borders
Leucothes are great for adding colour to pots or any container
Violas and pansies are great for pots, basket and window boxes.
Asters are affectionately known as September for obvious reasions
Gaillardias are great for wildlife
Fucshias are still doing their thing
Heuchera ‘Forever Purple’ ‘
Hebes look great in pots too.
Violas will flower through to winter
Hydrangeas add a bold colour to any border or patio pot.
Fucshias in bright pots can not be missed
The flowers on grasses add lovely height to borders and move beautifully in the wind
