What 's blooming in your September Moon Garden?
This is a popular thread so many times of the year in most forums. I am trying to bolster my white garden for this month next year, it seems the annuals are carrying it right now. I would like to add a few more fall blooming perennials, so if anyone has any white or very light colored flowers ( I prefer white for mine) in bloom now, or due in October, I'd love a few suggestions. I currently have the following blooming/or about to bloom:
Butterfly Bush White Bouquet
Cimifuga Hillside Black Beauty
Sedum Frosty Morn
Chrysanthemum Christine Hagemann (rebloom)
Formanosanum Lilies (finishing up)
Caladiums Candidum, and Marie Moir
Anemone Honerine Jobert (just about to open)
Double White Begonias
Lamium White Nancy
Hibiscus Blue River II
Snow Lady Daisies (rebloom)
Echinacea White Swan
White garden mums
Varigated Holly, Bronze Fennel, Artemesia Powis Castle, and various other foliage plants,
Cleome (way too much of this, heavy reseeder)
Alyssum carpet of snow
Zinnia crystal white (hasn't stopped blooming since I put it in)
Dianthus taylor white (rebloom)
Moonflower..( in bud, hope to bloom soon)
Dusty Miller ( I am going to do more of this next year..it shines so nicely)
White annual geraniums
White Angelonis (hasn't stopped blooming)
White tuberose that has only put up foliage so far, no signs of the calla lilies I put in either.
I also use some red and blue/deep purple for contrast during the day...not much.
Salvia > red, purple, blue, and white
Red Gerbera Daisies
It looks like a lot in print, but it is a large garden, and it needs more..more MORE>.. (am I obsessed?, you bet!)
Thanks for any input, I'd love some suggestions..I'll try and post some photos, I can't seem to get the whole garden in one shot, I am waiting for my first moonflower to open, I think it may be tomorrow!
