October Delights

11 years ago

It cannot be concealed that my garden begins to look tired around the middle of October. Mainly because all heleniums close down for the winter. Now at the end of the month there are only two helianthuses left. The rest has finished.

Helianthus Carine . I'm standing on my neighbor's possession when I'm making this picture.


Last blooming shoot of Helianthus decapetalus Soleil d'Or


Red Admiral on Triomphe de Gande.


Helianthus Simon Wiesenthal . One of the two still fresh. It will hopefully continue in November:


Here with Rudbeckia Henry Eilers(thrown out).


Helianthus Bitter Chocolate. Still some buds.


Helianthus Triomphe de Gand. No more buds.



Leucanthemella serotina Herbsstern. It is so much better than white asters. It replaced A.novi-angliae Herbstschnee, which was floppy and flowers were dying in an ugly way



Persicaria Caliente:


Aster sedifolius Nanus.No more buds now:


Here with Aster amellus Sonora:


Aconitum carmichaelli


Helianthus Lemon Queen. Finished.


Aster Pink Star. Will still bloom in November:



Phlox Oktoberrot(October red). It opens red, but changes to dark pink red.


Phlox Herbstwalzer. Still looking fresh. It will sail into November.


Enjoy! More beauties to come.
