It’s late summer and here at the TBG perennial hibiscus and cultivars of hydrangea are in full flower. Seen here, Hibiscus ‘Blue River II’, in white – which really stands out against all the yellow & orange this time of year.
Located at the south end of the Perennial Border, a display of hydrangea are in full flower. Here, Hydrangea paniculata ‘Phantom’ is actually changing colour already in mid-August.
Another view of the south end of the Perennial Border in full bloom with Verbena bonariensis (Brazilian verbena) and Hydrangea.
Also coming into full flower, again as with the bulk of the season a little early, are many varieties of anemone. Shown here in the Entry Garden is Anemone tomentosa ‘Robustissima’.
Still going strong despite the somewhat late arrival of Japanese beetles – at least to the TBG – is Rosa ‘Mary Rose’ (Modern shrub rose) on the west side of the building, West View Terrace. A number of rose cultivars are still blooming strong with persistent dead heading.
