Late Summer colour

In previous years the early and mid-Summer colour had been taking all the splendour so we  have been trying to brighten the early Autumn show. I am quite pleased with the result. I am getting better at cutting back the campanulas to get  a second flowering and am delighted to find how heleniums relish my damp soil. Ligularia varieties offer a long flowering season with the short but robust Cheju Charmer flowering into October. Eupatorium varieties, actaea, hirengeshoma and the many autumn grasses make for a colourful autumn.

Elupatorium mac.Glutball, Maclea k. Flamingo
