Mexican marigold mint, Tagetes lucida, our substitute for tarragon is another late bloomer seen here in the potager.
Careful trimming earlier on in the season will give maintain a more rounded shape as it can get quite large.
My Japanese anemones are just beginning to bloom. They are not as prolific this year because of lack of rainfall.
The tree senna, Cassia corymbosa, is the fourth major bloomer in the fall, although a little battered by the rainfall this weekend. It is a fast growing, short-lived tree but always makes more seedlings than you care for. I usually select one to replace the old tree.
Clouds of golden-eye, Viguiera dentata outside my gate. Scatter the seeds after they ripen and they will come.
And pink clouds of ruby crystal grass, Melinis nerviglumis, inside the gate. My love affair with this grass may soon be over!
There are pink flowers in the back gardens too. Gomphrena 'firecracker'
And the sweetest smelling rose, Felica. She has been blooming non-stop for weeks.
Amaranth, here again for another year despite my having pulled out as many seedlings as I could find. This one was growing by the gate and is now 5' tall. I saw a hummingbird there one day which really surprised me. The flowers are so dry and papery you couldn't imagine there being any nectar.
and pink gaura which the bees adore.
There are lots more blooms out there but these are the stars of my fall garden. If you would like to share your fall bloomers then please join Carol at May Dreams for Garden Bloggers' Bloom day.
