It's hard to believe that Violas are still blooming in August. Most flowers started blooming late, and many have been hanging on for months. One that I really can't believe is still going are the Sweet Peas, they've usually all been pulled up a month ago.
A cute new addition to the garden this year is Tennessee Coneflower (Echinacea tennesseensis).
Another new Coneflower is 'Milkshake'.
Agastaches have become a real favorite over the last couple of years. This yellow one is 'Summer Glow'.
Aster 'Monch' was finally moved from it's old spot of part sun to full sun and loves it. Time to move the other one out front too now.
Some of my absolute favorite flowers here. Rudbeckia 'Cherry Brandy', Agastache 'Apricot Sunrise' and Monarda 'Raspberry Wine'.
New in the garden this spring was Erysimum 'Apricot Twist'. It was in bloom when I bought in April and said on the tag it would bloom through May. Well, it hasn't stopped blooming since April and shows no signs of stopping. It also has a delicious scent.
I have it planted near Daylily 'Strawberry Candy' and they look beautiful together. This picture isn't the best, but hopefully you get the idea.
I know probably most of the country is ready for signs of fall, but I'm just not ready yet!
All of you in the way of Hurricane Irene I hope you stay safe and it passes by quickly without damage or injury.All words and photos in this post are property of A Gardener in Progress.
