Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day 8.15.2011

August in the garden can feel like nothing but weeds, weeds, weeds! So it's especially nice to take time to enjoy what's blooming right now:

The last of the daylilies:

Hemerocallis 'Hyperion'

The not-quite-ready-for-prime-time sedum:

Sedum 'Autumn Joy' One of my clients refers to these as "those plants that look like broccoli"

And the still going strong coneflowers:

Echinacea 'White Swan'

Ratibida columnifera

Looking fabulous right now are the bluemist spirea and butterfly bush:

Caryopteris x clandonensis

Buddleia davidii 'Dark Knight'

Buddleia davidii 'Nanho Blue' This compact form has a finer texture and silvery foliage.

Nearing the peak of perfection is the grass garden:

Switch grass (Panicum virgatum) left, and little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium).

Buffalo grass (Bucheloe dactyloides) swirls through the taller plants.

A tiny visitor...
