Re: Back to my garden....

blooming now.....
Plenty of garden Phlox, Phlox paniculata.  The problem with getting it now
is that usually it is sold small and takes a couple of years for the clump
to develop, so if you need fullness, you'll need to buy a lot.  Of course
Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia fulgida) and Purple coneflower - but you have
those already.  coreopsis 'Moonbeam' is a pretty quick filler, especially if
you pinch it a couple of times.   Tiger Lilies, Lilium, lancifolium as well
as orienpets and some orientals.  Toadlily, Tricyrtis 'Tojen' began blooming
last week and will carry on for a long time - if you need something for
shade.and bugbane, Actea/Cimicifuga, too, but they take time to get
established.  Artemisia lactiflora 'Guizhou', is tall, dark, and in good
form; not invasive.  Hydrangeas.  Indigofera is reblooming.  Astrantia
(Masterwort).  Silenes.

I'll check around the Display Gardens tomorrow for more ideas.  I did notice
that the Prairie garden was very full of bloom.  Monarda fistulosa, Compass
Plants and other Sylphiums, all looking glorious.  And remember, blooms are
nice, but you can also rely on texture and leaf color.
