Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - October 2017

Most of what is blooming in my garden right now are onezees except for a couple of things I took pictures of this week. Such as this Tricyrtis 'Samurai'. It was in the line of watering I did so it isn't so brown on the edges. It has bloomed quite nice.
The ole dependable Fall blooming Anemone 'Honorine Jobert' is blooming up a storm in this spot. It hasn't been watered either. One on the other side of the garden isn't doing so well and it has been watered. It is right beside the Tricyrtis. Hmmmm makes me wonder. 
The rest of my bloomers I am listing since they only have one or two blooms. 
Russian Sage
Asters (white and a purple) 
Aster 'Tataricis'
Rozanne Geranium
Rudbekia  

Annuals
Alyssum
Marigolds
Cleome
Salvia Black and blue, Wendy's Wish, Blue Spires

If you want to see what is happening in gardens all over the world head over to Carol's May Dreams Garden where everyone shows what is blooming.

  1. Seeing your toad lilies reminds me that I planted one a year ago--maybe purchased at Hornbaker's with you and Beckie last year? But I haven't seen any sign of it this year. My 'Honorine Joubert' is blooming, but isn't nearly as tall as it was last year. I thought it was lack of water, but seeing how gorgeous yours is, I wonder, too, what's going on. It's been a challenging season for gardening, to say the least, so seeing all these blooms this fall is a welcome sight.

  2. Japanese anemone seems to be one of those plants which either love or hate where they're at. Mine have always been haters lol
    Good to see a few things are still carrying on after the drought. Hope a few more steady rains take you nicely through fall!

  3. Lisa, your anemones are very nice and tolerant plants, flowering all the seasons. I have no many blooms in the garden too, the weather is rainy and cold. For your garden rain is what it need more, isn't it?

  5. Thank goodness for fall bloomers as they help us enjoy the garden's last hurrah before winter closes down shop for a while. Love Japanese anemones!

  6. Love that toad lily. It is not one I am familiar with. My Jp. Anemone is in a spot that barely got watered and it did pretty well. Maybe we are babying them too much.

  7. Wow, look at those Anemones! They look beautiful surrounded by the fencing. I wasn't successful with Tricyrtis. I only tried once, so maybe I need to give them another chance. I really like them, and it's great to have more true fall-blooming flowers around.

  8. Oh is the limited blooms because of the tempetatures? Here in the tropics I need to post only within a genus because they will not fit in a single post! But in your spring, we are at the looser side, haha!

  10. That's a good flowering list, Lisa. Here in Scotland, I'm also enjoying purple asters, Rozanne and the white jap anemone. It's fun to think we've the same bloomers at the same time being so far away. I've never seen the Tricyrtis (except perhaps at garden shows) its got an interesting flower that I guess attracts a lot of insects?

    1. Yes Shirley, there is often a bee poking it's head into the flowers.

  12. Hi Lisa, your Anemone 'Honorine Jobert' is wonderful. I have not had luck with anemone, but after seeing yours I want to try again! I also have to comment on your pine straw covered path in your last post. it looks great, and I can imagine the fragrance. I love fresh pine straw and use it liberally in my garden.

    1. Hi Deb, Good luck with HJ. I find her easy to grow. She really doesn't like a lot of sun in my garden. The best spot is here in late afternoon sun. I would be a whole lot more liberal with pine straw if I could find another source.
