What’s Blooming October 15

Here’s everything that’s blooming in my garden this October 15, 2009.  Don’t click to zoom — I didn’t realize the pictures were fuzzy until I got them on the computer & didn’t want to do over.

If I’ve named something incorrectly, I won’t be offended if you let me know.

  1. We have so many of the same plants – figures!! I’m desperately trying to find more of the Chocolate Eupatorium out here, to no avail. One of my poor clients has been so patient, yet no one is selling it!! Isn’t it just the best plant EVER??!!

  3. We’ve got quite a bit of the same things blooming. Isn’t ‘Summer Ice’ great? It’s bloomed spring through fall.
    The pink one before ginko from your neighbor’s yard looks like Knautia. I’ve got some finishing blooming. It reseeds really easily, maybe they’ll share with you :)

    • Catherine, All the plants are in my yard – I just have no idea what they’re called since I got them from my neighbor’s yard. I’m happy I finally know the one is called Knautia. Thank you!

    • I looked it up and the name of the ground cover with pink spikes is: Persicaria Affinis ‘Superba’

  9. Don’t you hate when the fuzzies occur? Not to worry, they’re fine.

    Love the pansy, can hardly wait to plant violas here as soon as it’s a little cooler.

    • Nell, it’s funny how the pictures look fine when they’re small but look horrible and fuzzy when made big.

      The little pansy/violas (not sure which they are) just appeared there one day and reseed every year. Gotta love that.

    • I just got it this year and love it. Not only does it smell great but it’s been in bloom all summer/fall. I think it was red and white at first and now it’s pink. Interesting, I hadn’t noticed until you mentioned it.

      How long have you had yours? I’ll be very happy if it comes back next year.

  11. Hey wait a minute! How come you still have lavender blooming? I might have one little plant in bloom right now but I am afraid of drowning if I go out to look. It’s raining like the days of Noah around here. ;-)
    You have a lot of great flowers in bloom. I really need to get some dahlias in my garden. Your’s look great.

    • The dahlias in the raised bed did the best. The ones scattered around the garden didn’t do as well – just plant them in the sunniest spot you have and they’ll do great.

    the photos don’t look too fuzzy on my screen – beautiful shots of your beautiful garden – so nice and orderly! It’s nice to see that your roses are still blooming. Most of mine are gone but my coral Flower Carpet roses are still blooming and are brighter than ever – go figure.
