Beautiful Late Bloomers

13 Oct


Look at the progress in our problem corner!

This purple-flowering late bloomer is a Smooth Aster “bluebird” –one of the butterfly plants I planted earlier this year. It’s a host for migrating monarchs, who tend to pass through this area later in the season.  (October does seem very late, though)



I love the contrast of the goldenrod next to the other flowering plants we got from a donor.  -Denise
