September Bloomers

Cyclamen hederifolium 002 Wm


Cyclamen hederifolium

There is no doubting that autumn is on the way when the Cyclamen start to appear. Some of these are already producing seed pods and sprouting their ivy-like leaves, which remain all winter.




Many of the old stalwarts have been flowering for months.

Meconopsis cambrica Welsh Poppy 001 Wm


Meconopsis cambrica, the Welsh Poppy

It springs up everywhere, but I’ve been trying to establish it in a drift on the bank, with mixed success so far. It seems that it decides where it wants to grow, not me.




Two new additions to the garden are starting to establish..



Tricyrtis formosana ‘Pink Freckles’


Chelone Obliqua 001 Wm


Chelone ‘Obliqua’

Also known as ‘Turtle Head’. Not difficult to see why.


Day Lily 001 Wm


Day Lily?

Now this one is a bit of a mystery. It looks like a Day Lily but is only about 12 inches high. And it only started flowering late last month. My best guess is Hemerocallis ‘Stella de Oro’. But very happy to be corrected.


Verbena bonariensis 001 Wm


 Verbena bonariensis

 Still going strong and attracting insects a plenty.




 Other additions this year have been the Japanese anemones.

I hope they don’t turn out to be invasive.


Anemone Hupehensis Praecox 001 Wm


Anemone hupehensis ‘Praecox’


Anemone x hybrida Honorine Jobert 001 Wm


 Anemone x hybrida ‘Honorine Jobert’


Anemone Hupehensis Rotkappchen 001 Wm


 Anemone hupehensis ‘Rotkappchen’




The sedums are just starting to open.

I gave them the benefit of a Chelsea Chop in May. As a result they are late, but will hopefully be more compact.


Sedum 001 Wm


Sedum inherited (variety unknown)

 A taste of things to come.
