Summer's last hurrah

Now that we're entering a chilly autumn spell, I thought I'd post some lovely late summer garden colour. These were all looking terrific at RHS Garden Wisley just a few weeks ago. I find that late summer-flowering plants give gardens a lasting vibrancy and tend to keep looking good longer than those that flower earlier. Choose Salvias, Penstemons, Dahlias, Rudbeckias and grasses to compliment the brilliant autumn foliage of Euonymus alata and the Liquidamber tree.          CLICK ON THE IMAGES TO SCROLL SIDEWAYS
