What 's blooming in your September Moon Garden?

JustJoeyGirl(z5 NY)September 4, 2004

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

Dahlia Fleurelle

Cimifuga Hillside Black Beauty

Sedum Frosty Morn

Veronica Icicle

Chrysanthemum Christine Hagemann (rebloom)

Formanosanum Lilies (finishing up)

Caladiums Candidum, and Marie Moir

Boltonia Snowbank

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)

White Lantana

Nicotiana Alata

White Petunias

White Cosmos

White impatiens

White vinca

White verbena

White portulaca

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 Salvia

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.

Geranium Rozanne

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!

Lambs ears, that is great, that will fit right in. I can't believe I don't know what any of the other plants you listed are. I'll have to look some of them up, thank you.

I do have a hosta Aphrodite..very nice white double fragrant flowers, but their foliage is so big and green most of the year, I am not sure if I will put it in.

We've had a cool summer here in the U.P. of Michigan, so a lot of plants are behind. My Datura 'Belle Blanche' is just starting to really take off. Four O'clock 'Alba" is going strong and smelling wonderful, Baby's Breath, white Petunias, Alyssum, and Double White Begonias. The one that really took over is the Borage "Alba". They reseeded from last year, but I don't mind. They're awesome! Little stars nodding in the moon light, beautiful with the dew dripping off them in the early morning. Gotta love 'em! Sounds like I'm going to have to expand my Moon Garden to keep up with you guys!

Wow, a white borage? Cool, I have the sky blue and love them. I'll have to keep my eye out for them. I only wish I had planted my garden in the path of the moonlight. I enjoy mine at dusk..

Hello, I would love to see pictures of your garden. Don't try to have it all in one shot. We will be happy to ssee several close ups or distant pix. You can have a great plant that blooms twice in white and fragrant: choysia ternata, choysia variegated; sarcoccocca that flowers in winter and fragrant;they are bushes 4 feet wide when adults and so beautiful. Centaurea gymnocarpa has a grey foliage. Flowers are pink I think. Give us pix please!
