August Bloomers


 

Helenium ‘Indianersommer’

The late summer flowers are coming into their own now.

 
 

Hydrangea 003 Wm

 

Hydrangea, inherited (variety unknown)

 
 

Fuchsia 001 Wm

 

Hardy border fuchsia, inherited

 
 

Campanula carpatica Wm

 

 Campanula carpatica

 
 

Agapanthus Zachary Wm[1]

 

Agapanthus ‘Zachary’

 
 

Penstemon Snowstorm Wm

 

Penstemon ‘Snowstorm’

 
 

Rose Lady Emma Hamilton 002 Wm

 

 Rose ‘Lady Emma Hamilton’

The roses are still flowering

 
 

Geranium 003a Wm

 

 And this NoID geranium has just put up a second flush of flowers.

The bees are loving it..

 
 

Digitalis ferruginea gigantea Wm

 

 Digitalis ferruginea ‘Gigantea’. But not quite as much as they are loving this.

The name does not deceive. It is enormous. So much so that we took a tape measure up to measure it: 1.9m.

It is covered with flower spikes and I’ve never seen quite so many bees on a plant.

 
 

 Eryngium planum Blue Glitter Wm

 

Eryngium planum ‘Blue Glitter’

Another with aspirations to reach the sky. It is slated for a move when it has finished flowering. As is this..

 
 

Astilbe 001 Wm

 

Astilbe, inherited

 

 It seems that our wet and relatively mild Devon climate is highly conducive to growth.

There will be much to do, come autumn.

 
 

 Digitalis Illumination Wm

 

 Digitalis ‘Illumination’

The Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year, 2012
