Checking in from the left-coast here, where the time zone stragglers post as the folks back east are pulling up the covers and dozing off.
Sanguisorba 'Chocolate Tips' ..I'm having a great time collecting Sanguisorbas-they are never seen in garden centers here .All of mine have either been purchased n Washington/Oregon or at Digging Dog.
I'm thrilled with this Persicaria, but it absolutely clashes with almost everything in it's immediate area. It will have to be moved in fall.
One of my ever diminishing Roses, this is 'Jeane Giono' , a keeper.
Clematis 'Rooguchi' , it's in the top 5.
Clematis 'Arabella' ..ditto above. Flowers, seedheads, puffy seedheads. Hail Arabella.
More Persicaria action..no clashing here.
This Lantana in the hell strip dies to the ground every winter-this year it has some reversion going on.
It's high Dahlia season..this is 'Bahama Mama' .
A Fuchsia..it's name escapes me, but I got it at Annies and it seems to be mite resistant.
Good old reliable Ceratostigma plumbagoides.
Thanks Carol !
