Late Season Bloomers


In the hottest part of the season after a summer shower, you may notice late season bloomers sprout. I was delighted to discover this attractive pink and white salvia/Salvia greggii ‘Coral Nymph’ had sprouted in one of my containers. I recognized the seedling because I had it planted in the same container the year before; otherwise, it may have been weeded out. There is also a red one. Autumn sage is attractive to hummingbirds as a new source of nectar late in the growing season.


Eupatorium/mist flower is a late season perennial that adds a little blue to the garden. It is quite nice next to the rich color of rudbeckias.


A few of the clematis that bloomed earlier this year are reblooming although sparingly.


The pesky squirrels eat the water lily foliage like candy when the weather turns hot and dry. They left a bit of cover for the fishes, however.

    Your hummingbird shots are fabulous!
    I just keep hoping and hoping that the hawk flying over my house is quick enough to catch one of our pesky squirrels. 🙂
