What’s in Bloom: September 15-22

In the Show Garden:

Ilex verticillata ‘Nana’ (Winterberry) hardy in Zones 3-9. The flowers are insignificant but it produces large bright red berries


In the Water Garden North:

Sedum (Autumn Joy) = ‘Herbstfreude’ (Stonecrop) with Aster laevis ‘Bluebird’ (Smooth Aster). A classic perennial, ‘Autumn Joy’ is arguably the most popular of the sedums with pink flower heads deepening to bronzy red. A great plant in combination with fall flowering asters.


In the Show Garden:

Sedum rupestre ‘Angelina’ (Stonecrop) with Ajuga reptans ‘Black Scallop’ (Bugleweed). The Ajuga’s almost black leaves make a stunning combination with the sedum’s golden yellow evergreen foliage which turns reddish-orange in fall.

In the Herb and Show Garden:

Rhus typhina (Tiger Eyes) = Bailtiger (Cutleaf Sumac) with its stunning fall colour combines exquisitely with Dahlia ‘Embrace’ (Small Semi-cactus) (Dahlia) from the TBG’s Dahlia collection.

In the Entry Garden:

Acer griseum (Paperbark Maple) known for its stunning bark. Hardy in Zones 4-9.

In the Entry Garden:

Panicum virgatum ‘Shenandoah’ (Switch Grass) interplanted with Panicum virgatum ‘Strictum’ (Switch Grass, Panic Grass) both known for their fall colour. Shenandoah is already turning red while Strictum will turn yellow in fall.
