This is a new Cosmos plant I tried this year and I absolutely love it! The colors are so vibrant! I have it in yellow and orange. I bought them on clearance at a greenhouse closing for the summer, so they only had a few left. Next year, I'm heading straight to that greenhouse in early spring so I can get a boat load of them.
Here is the yellow version of the same plant. They are so healthy and bloom constantly.
My spirea bushes looked gorgeous this year. I have them in light pink and this darker pink. This fuchsia pink is my favorite.
Here is one of the spirea bush blooms close up.
I love to use Stella d' oro Daylilies as edgers. They stay nice and low and look beautiful in bloom or when just green.
Here is a close up of the Stella d'oro Daylily.
My Hibiscus tree is still blooming beautifully. They just had them on clearance for only $5.00 at a local home improvement store, so I bought another one in peach. I will bring them in for the winter.
I don't know what I'd do without Viburnum bushes in my garden. If you can only plant one bush in your yard, I'd recommend a Viburnum bush. They grow in sun or shade, they provide such a pop of color, and they are in bloom for such a long time. The blooms dry right on the bush and even change colors. They provide interest all season long! Here is a pink one in the foreground and the large Annabelle in the distance.
Now for some close-ups of the Annabelle Hydrangea. It's getting quite large. I should start thinking about digging up portions and moving to other spots along my yard. Maybe my fence line?
I love to nestle my angel statue inside it's beautiful blooms.
These blooms are just so gorgeous! I just cut a bunch and brought them inside. They look gorgeous in an arrangement.
And here is a close up of the pink "Endless Summer" hydrangea. Such a pretty color!
I was very pleased with the number of blooms I got from this bush this year.
All the Asiatic Lilies are finished blooming now. I only got one picture of a reddish orange one to share. I have many different colors and varieties, but unfortunately never took the time to photograph any of the others.
Another edger I use is the yellow flowering green sedum.
It is everywhere in my yard. Here you can see it bordering a retaining wall.
More pictures coming soon!
Have a Great Day! Amy
