What's Blooming in September?

The September butterfly garden continues the yellow theme, but now goldenrods join the sunflowers.  False Sunflower, Common Sunflower and Evening Primrose are still blooming exuberantly.  Touches of white are provided by Boneset and white asters.  The earliest pink and blue asters are starting to bloom.  Along the back wall, you will see a few Summer Phlox plants and in the front of the border Common Milkweed is still in bloom.

The Savannah shows more green than yellow -- many of the plants have gone to seed, but there are still blossoms;  Queen Ann's Lace, Purple Coneflower, Feverfew, Common Sunflower and native grasses.

The round bed in front of the center is filled with sunflowers and asters just waiting to bloom in all their blue glory.

The roadside plantings are never watered, so they are showing some stress.  Most of the Coreopsis and Black Eyed Susans have gone to seed but the plants are healthy.

The bird-feeding area behind the Center glories in Queen Ann's Lace, Common Milkweed and Butterfly Milkweed.  Native grasses and Cat-tails border the bubbling stream.
