We ranters are blooming all the time, of course, but this month only three have images to show; Amy is busy on the road.
I know now that Michele’s heart belongs mostly to her veggies, but she loves her lilies and dahlias too. Here are some anonymous ball dahlias that produce very well for her, allowing spare clumps for the neighbors as well.
Susan is busy coaching, giving interviews about coaching, and ripping out her lawn, trowel-full by trowel-full, but she did send in these hydrangeas (coloring beautifully) and some echinops (always cool).
As for me, I have fallen in love with these Prairie Glow rudbeckia trilobia, now providing the most intense color in the garden. They may not be quite perennial, but I will have no problem buying more now that I’ve seen what they can do. You can see some other late summer perens and annuals in the background.
