The flower beds are looking very cheerful this time of year with their late summer colour...
Grown from seed a few years ago, I have three lavender plants (bottom left in photo), two of which are still flowering strong (one has been cut back). They were slow to grow from seed (cuttings would probably be the quicker way to grow). They're one of most pleasantly scented plants I can think of, and the bees love them.
The yellow flowering Rudbeckia Goldsturm was purchased at a plant clearance sale and improves with age each year.
This white agapanthus is in its 2nd year. Last year I had two large flower heads, and this year there is only one - every year is different in the garden!!!
|Echinacea Purpurea / Coneflower is still the plant of the week (if not the plant of late Summer). Its flowers look fantastic and they seem to keep coming.|
What are your favourite flowers this time of year?
