In the Garden Hall Courtyard a terrific late summer grouping of Anemone x hybrida ‘September Charm’ (Japanese Anemone) with Anemone x hybrida ‘Party Dress’ (the darker pink of the two anemones). In the foreground, Tricyrtis ‘Tojen’ (Toad Lily).

In the Water Garden North:

Sedum spectabile ‘Brilliant’ (Showy Stonecrop) with Sedum ‘Postman’s Pride.’ Both are terrific selections and are hardy to our climate. They show well even through winter after their flowers have dried. Postman’s Pride is a dark-stemmed variety gaining popularity.

In the Garden Hall Courtyard:

Acer palmatum var. dissectum (Dissectum Group) ‘Garnet’ (Japanese Maple) with an underplanting of Hakonechloa macra ‘All Gold’ (Japanese Forest Grass)

Sandra Pella about the author: Sandra Pella

Sandra Pella has worked as Head Gardener of the Toronto Botanical Garden since 2008. She holds a degree in Political Science from the University of Western Ontario, and upon graduation worked in the financial sector until the pull of plants was too much to resist, whereupon she found herself at Janet Anderson Perennials (formerly JEA Perennials) as a horticultural technician. She has been the Perennial Manager at Summerhill Nursery & Floral followed by the Assistant Horticulturist at the TBG prior to its renovation. Sandra worked as a Gardener for two seasons with the City of Toronto as well as seasonal Gardener for the TBG prior to being named Head Gardener. She is self-taught in the field and thus greatly appreciated the experience a gardening internship in 2009 at Great Dixter in the UK brought to her. Sandra has a regular What’s In Bloom blog and is one of the spokespeople for the TBG.
