A Hot Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - September 2012


I wasn't quite sure where the summer went... and I'm not sure where fall is going, either!  At this rate, I might be caught up on everything by the end of the year.  (Might.)  


But these hot-colored late summer blooms aren't going to wait for me to finish anything, so I'd better enjoy them while I can! And maybe stop to appreciate this crazy pitcher plant, too:


From the top:  'New Look Red' celosia, with red pennisetum in the background.  "No Tag" lantana above a cascade of 'Silver Falls' dichondra.  The nepenthes that I planted in a self-watering hanging basket this spring--one of the best things I did in the garden this year!

Also blooming in my garden:  'Black & Blue' salvia guaranitica, multiple Japanese anemones, two types of caryopteris, 'Hameln' pennisetum, 'Red Rocks' penstemon, 'Acapulco Orange' agastache, 'Hopi Red Dye' amaranth, tomatillos, 'Strawberry Margarita' portulaca, 'African Blue' basil, burgundy annual salvia, 'Rotstrahlbusch' panicum, 'Sioux Blue' sorghastrum nutens, perennial plumbago, 'Victoria Blue' salvia, 'Dragonwing' begonia, Mexican heather, lonicera sempervirens, and 'Blue Daze' convolvulus.

I should make a post of what is blooming too. I am surprised to see you here since you are still on your honeymoon no doubt. ;) The pitcher plant is an odd thing. Very interesting indeed. Happy GBBD.

Hahaha, Greenbow Lisa... more like playing catchup! I wish we were still on our honeymoon--we went up to Michigan and had a lovely vacation. :-) Happy GBBD!

outlawgardener, thank you... on both counts! :-D
