Despite the fact that the marauding rabbits have shorn at least half of my big clumps of Toad lilies (Tricyrtis) right down to the ground, there was more to see on the 15th of this month than I'd anticipated.
The only Toad Lilies that have not been munched: Tricytris hirta 'Tojen.' Ignore those tragic Hosta leaves down in the corner.
Calamintha nepeta subsp. nepeta is still going strong along with Astrantia major 'Buckland' and Heuchera 'Marmalade' or maybe it's 'Peach Flambe.'
Kirengeshoma palmata, Koreana group, whose flowers are more outward facing than the straight species.
The bright sun made it impossible to capture the delicate blooms of 'Steeple Jackie' daylily but I managed to snap Forsythia 'Beatrix Farrand' that seems to always send out fall flowers. This is a massive old shrub that is growing above my head and coming over the fence from our neighbor's garden. I love its crazy excess.
My first foray into Dahlia growing has convinced my to buy a few more for next year's garden. This is in a pot that I've been moving to wherever I want a bit of color.
Judging by the growth and number of flowers it's sending out, Geranium wlassovianum has finally found its perfect home. I put two old plants at the top of the new boulder wall and both are doing the best they've done in quite a few years.
Pink is represented with Cimcifuga racemosa. Every clump of this is doing well this year and nary a rabbit has bothered them
Anemone japonica 'September Charm'. I love this plant but it is just too aggressive for my garden. I think this may be its last year.
