September in the Northern Hemisphere
« on: September 03, 2022, 10:41:23 PM »
I,m still finding plants in the "new" garden. These have just appeared. They start out as white buds then turn pink.

This is an attractive find, I think - a colchicum with a large white center and well defined pink rim would certainly be an asset to every garden! You´ve been very lucky, really!
Most of the garden looks depressing now, as well as the surrounding landscape. Yet the terrace is still colourful, with Hedychium gardnerianum and Ipomoea x sloteri, a gift from a kind forumist.



Seemannia nematanthodes ´Evita´ is new and not yet tested for hardiness.



Some colchicums try to make up for withered shrubs and perennials.



The developing seedpod of Trachymene caerulea looks quite interesting, I think.



The drought reduced this Dipsacus sativus to a dwarfish size I´ve never seen before.

Mariette, you manage to find interesting plants to photograph in spite of drought. I'm glad your Colchicums don't mind drought.

Here August and September have also been dry but nothing like what you others have, and most of my plants are doing well.
First Colchicums have started to flower and in sunny part of the garden Heleniums have been wonderful for the past three weeks, and still going on flowering.
First Asters are also started to flower, and last Phloxes are still flowering.
The last picture from a shady spot shows self sown Stylophorum diphyllum doing well but right beside it Pulmonaria 'Majeste' is struggling because it is too dry for it.

Inspired by Ian Young's amazing creativity in the most recent Bulblog thought I would do a small homage to our departed Queen. Got a tiny bit carried away with so much in flower.

Goldenrods, asters, few mushrooms, Rhus changing color - fall is here and it will accelerate in our region due to the drought and incoming cold announced.

If that would be my frontyard, I would be fined by the city Ashley!  :D (we have rules regarding the 'wild garden' look for the frontyards).
There is one Solidago canadensis that showed up by itself and I'll take care to remove the flowers when they are done.

Toxicodendron vernis from a wetland, although this year there was almost no 'wet' in it except for early spring:

Ilex verticillata, prefers wetlands but grows well even in regular soils.


Cornus alternifolia


The missing pictures, I had one just a bit over 200 and the whole post got messed up.

Gabriela, lovely autumn colours in your pictures!
And I liked especially the mushroom photo. :)

Acer palmatum 'Atropurpureum'

Stefan, lovely pictures. I didn't know that A.palmatum seeds are also red,
they give another extra to your autumn garden.

Here September has been dry and cold, with many frosty nights already, but still most of the plants are ok. Only zucchinis and such have died.
Heleniums are still flowering, and some asters too, though they are late starting to flower this year. I fear that some don't flower at all before winter.
In the first picture the red autumn leaves in peony P.obovata ssp willmottiae x P.anomala hybrid, my own seedling.

Most of all it is now a Colchicum season in my garden. They give colour to the woodland part of the garden and I love them. :)

Beautiful foliage on the peony Leena :)
and nice to see all the Colchicums. Few are also starting to show here but I doubt is going to be a great show this fall.

It's Sternbergia period, here greuteriana.

Always harbingers of the fall!
