Fall is well known for its colorful foliage that paints the country each year but there’s still lots to appreciate among the flowering plants! Here’s a few of our current blooming flowers from the garden. Some don’t have much longer to go until the frost declares an end to the show.
The ‘Clara Curtis’ mums put on a spectacular show by our front walkway each year. They get a little large and spread via rhizomes so make sure you have space for them before you plant. These are one of the last blooms in our garden to show off every year. Sure makes for a good finish!
Gaillardia or Blanket Flower is a great repeat bloomer that keeps going thorough out the summer and well into the fall. If I dead headed it there would be more blooms but I have some seed collecting plans ahead.
The reblooming white iris is putting on some more flowers. If you like irises you need a few reblooming irises to enjoy all summer!
The Fall Colors beginning to turn along the back property line. It’s mostly sassafras trees but the maples are also beginning their seasonal changes. I hope you’ll join us for the Fall Color Project 2012 to share your best fall foliage!
