I am loving these Menards dahlias that I forgot the name of. I had lost the package of 3 roots, or whatever they are called, and then found it about a week after they were supposed to be in by.
Black and Blue salvia:
This lovely iris is still blooming and has a couple more buds! Marnie thought it might be Immortality. I don't remember the name of the gaillardia, but it is having flopping problems.
I cut this Debonair Mum back a couple times this summer, but since it's taller than other varieties I've grown, I wasn't sure how far back to cut it. This is the first flower of the season to open, and it's earlier than I think it should be. It's the only mum I'm growing, as I 'm not a big fan of them, as they either spread too far and wide for me, or else don't survive very long. I planted this last fall, and like it better than others I've grown.
The iceberg floribunda rose I planted this summer is growing and blooming. I like that in a plant, when it does both.
I love these cockscombs that my neighbor friend gave me last year. There are 3 colors, and I'll post the ones in my veggie garden when I give the update from that.
The short toothed mountain mint is continuing to do well, and is loved by a variety of insects.
I've had this helenium for a number of years, and it has put up with being moved more than once. It has never gotten this tall before. I guess you can't tell from here, but it's over 4 feet tall. I think it's competing with the plants around it.
I know the name of this, but it's not coming to my brain. I've seen it on other posts. (Jill-O found the name of the plant. It's Cayopteris x clandonensis, or blue mist shrub. Thanks, Jill!)
