Roses continue to grow and bloom..
All Salvias are flowering in various stages, for this month it seems Waverly has the most action going.
The Tracheliums were flopping badly in August , so I cut them all quite low , not expecting much other than a bit of fresh foliage; all are reblooming now .
This grama grass -Bouteluea 'Blonde Ambition' -was planted quite late from a mail order nursery liner, and I didn't expect blooms this year at all ..only a few , but damn they're cute.
Chocolate Cosmos has performed well this year , a new edition to replace a tired and woody Santolina.
My biggest surprise though, is the rebloom on this unnamed Sanguisorba from Far Reaches Farm. I don't typically deadhead Sanguisorba but in this case it was in the way of an area I was reworking so all the bloomed-out stems and ratty foliage were taken down to the ground , and to my surprise I have new clean foliage and 4 or 5 new bloom stems . Who knew ?
Be sure to visit May Dreams for more October blooms , and happy Bloomday to all !
