|Sedum 'Brilliant' and Liriope in Bloom|
|Dwarf Fountain Grass, Sedum, Blue Star Juniper and Heuchera|
The grasses are developing their wispy plumes and the Sedum 'Brilliant' is extremely vibrant this year. Here is a combination of 'Hameln' fountain grass, Sedum 'Brilliant', Blue Star Juniper and heuchera (coral bells). The coral bells thrive in the shadow of the grasses and are complemented by the blue of the juniper and pink of the sedum.
|Sedum, Heuchera and Grasses|
Here is a close up of the sedum and heuchera combination. I am really enjoying it this year.
|Weeping Blue Atlas Cedar, Rosy Glow Barberry, Gold Mop Cypress and Buddlea 'Lo & Behold'|
One of my newer Weeping Blue Atlas Cedars is finally sending out a leader branch that cascades gracefully over the gold mop cypress and dwarf butterfly bush. It has been a good growing season and this piece is turning into a prize specimen. I look forward to even more to enjoy as this tree matures. It is amazing how each one is so different.
|Double Pink Knock Out Rose|
I cannot get enough of my new Knock Out Roses. They have been blooming all summer. It's a toss up between the red and the pink but I think pink may be my favorite!
|More Sedum 'Brilliant' in Bloom with Moss Rock Accent|
Can't get enough of the sedum this year...so bright!!!
Heuchera 'Citronelle' is the newest member to my garden added just this past September. Its' vibrant lime-green glow adds eye-catching color to the shadier areas of the landscape.
|Golden Hinkoi Cypress and Boxwood|
Here is a more formal section of my gardens that I just noticed while taking pictures looks especially nice in fall. I think I'll have to look some more!
|Perennial Garden: Grasses, Salvia, Lamb' Ear, Lilies and Astilbe|
The perennial garden takes on a new look in September. Soon the colors will be turning to bright oranges and yellows.
|Dwarf Fountain Grass 'Hameln' Plumes|
The fountain grasses developed their plumes earlier this year so there has been a little more time to enjoy their interest in the garden.
|Sedum 'Brilliant' Flower Up Close|
The butterflies and bumble bees just love the sedum at this time of year.
Heuchera 'Caramel' is displaying its' new growth for fall.
|Liriope in Bloom (September)|
Liriope is at its prime at the end of August and into September displaying its' bright grape-like purple blooms.
I know...more sedum...but the garden fairies from "May Dreams Gardens" insisted!!!
|Double Red Knock Out Rose|
Red or pink....which one is the favorite???
|Buddlea in Flower|
Dwarf Buddlea 'Lo & Behold' has really proven to be one of my favorite flowering shrubs in the garden. It has flowered all throughout the summer and is still full of vibrant purple blooms going into fall.
|Double... Double Red Knock Out Rose!|
This is a time of transition in the northeastern garden...a time of change and beauty. As the seasons change I look forward to all the beauty nature has to offer.
