Jewels of the late, late show

Things are rapidly winding down here, with only 19 blooming today.

AUTUMN JEWELS with CHEROKEE STAR - Part of the AJ clump is performing better than it has in many years. I took a couple of plants out of the bed, thinned other clumps and added Cherokee Star. I like the way CS looks with AJ and El Desperado. The truer red really makes the bed pop.

CHEROKEE STAR is such a wonderful shade of red, and it had 16-17 buds per scape.

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS with BEST FOR LAST - These keep the fence border colorful for a long time in July.

TRANCE is a fabulous clump in the late garden. It's looked like this for the past 10 days - nine blooms today.

WITCH'S STICK ffo was yesterday. It usually doesn't bloom so late, but the pot was buried under weeds and unnoticed for awhile. I finally discovered it and moved it to full sun.

Last MUSICAL MEDLEY bloom

UNLOCK THE STARS reblooming - This was sold to me as Unlock the Stars but it has never looked lavender. I think it might really be the pink parent of UTS, NATURE'S CROWN. It looks very much like the photo of NC that Nat posted yesterday.
