Re: Back to my garden....

What I gave you last night was from memory.  I looked around my garden this
morning (haven't been to the CES gardens yet)  Here's a more accurate list
of what's blooming here:

Heliopsis Summer Sun  and H. Loraine Sunshine
Balloon Flowers
Four O'Clocks
Agastache (Anise Hyssop) -many varieties available
Galtonia (Summer Hyacinth)
Several Clematis
Several Hardy geraniums - Rozanne a good one
Malva Zebrina
Rose of Sharon - I have Diane(white) and a Blue one
Corydalis (fumewort)
3 Alliums- flavum, pulchellum, and pulchellum 'Album'
Filipendula 'Kayome' - a dwarf, (the full size were finished blooming some
time ago)
Lamium maculatum-Spotted deadnettle - bloom on and off throughout season
Veronicas - May Night and Blue Bouquet
Tradescantia Sweet Kate - Spiderwort - reblooming
Astilbe chinensis - these bloom later than other Astilbes
Hibiscus moscheutos - hardy Dinner Plate Hibs - I have Kopper King
several Phlox paniculatas
Purple Coneflowers
Coreopsis 'Moonbeam', C. rosea, - C tripteris(very tall) will be blooming
Liliums - lancifolium, orienpets, orientals
Tricyrtis 'Tojen' - other toadlilies will bloom later
Artemisia lactiflora 'Guizhou' (Bluestone Perennials)
Indigofera kirilowii
Astrantia major - Masterworts
Silene Clifford Moor and S. uniflora (a grndcvr) are finishing, but if cut
back earlier may have provided rebloom now
Actea/Cimicifuga - 3 varieties, the species blooming now, Hillside just
getting ready to bllom, Compton, tagging behind.
Some annuals/tender perennials I have that you ought to consider for fill,
fast size, color, not just for bloom , but in some cases leaves:
Persian Shield
African Daisy (Osteospermum)
Real Plumbago
Purple Fountain Grass
Purple Majesty Millet
Tuberous begonias
Sweet Potato vines
Diascias and Million Bells, Petunias
Foxtail Fern
Nicotiana 'Sensation' - Flowering Tobacco
Cleome, Cosmos

Many of these tender plants can be easily overwintered as cuttings for a lot
more plants next year and not take up much space as cuttings rather than as
whole plants.
Some of these items, both the hardies and tenders, I may be able to send
you, let me know if any appeal to you and I'll see what I can do.
