More late summer sights at the BG
Seriously, I wish I could hire these guys to replant a couple of my beds. Though I am never impressed when I visit earlier in the season, they have late-blooming perennials DOWN. These plants always bloom longer and better than their counterparts in local domestic gardens.
For example, here’s where I fell in love with verbena bonariensis and where I regretted having failed with my knautia. Neither are particularly unusual plants but they both look terrific en masse, as they have them here.
We also like to walk around the park, where the trees are beginning to color and the lily pond is still full of lotus.
They also have more success with their dahlias than I will ever, ever, ever have.
