Pam, at Digging, posted some very cool foliage for her follow-up to GBBD, and I am joining in to link some of mine that I had taken for today.
The pink betony is finished blooming, and the foliage is continuing to look pretty good.
The bear's breeches I planted last spring hasn't bloomed yet.
The amsonia hubrechtii foliage is starting to turn colors.
The amsonia tabernaemontana has bushed back out after its trim awhile back.
The rue is looking pretty good. Swallowtail caterpillars like to eat it, but I've only seen a couple on them the several rue plants I have.
This is a white blooming cypress vine on the veggie garden fence. This is my first time growing this color. This one escaped being eaten by rabbits. The red blooming ones in the front are starting to come back after being chomped to the ground.
The name of this dusty miller that I believe is new this year isn't coming to my brain right now. I think I have it named in another post somewhere.
These coleus plants have grown quite tall, and have only had a few flower buds that we've removed so the foliage will stay nice. I think I'll try taking some cuttings and see if I can keep some over the winter. (That's morning glory foliage to the right.)
I planted ornamental sweet potatoes without flowers to see if there would be more tubers to eat. There are people who find my blog by looking online to see if ornamental sweet potatoes are edible. There is not much information that encourages folks to eat them. What I can't figure out is if any are actually not edible, but so far, the ones I've tried were fine to eat. I plan to try all of these.
I hope you are experiencing cooler temperatures like we are. I just hope it rains tonight. Thanks for stopping by!
