Remember how our spring came so early this year? When you come to the White River Gardens this early fall, you'll see many, very beautiful late season blooming perennial. But the extra-long growing season has encouraged additional bits of re-blooming from a number of plants that normally bloom only in the summer! Here are a few:
Giant hyssop (Agastache 'Blue Fortune') has certainly been extending its bloom time this long season!
Fall windflower (Anemone x hybrid 'Honorine Jobert') is always a late season bloomer, but the black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia fulgida) is putting on an extra late season show.
This one panicled hydrangea stem (Hydrangea paniculata 'Pink Diamond') has shot up a new flower cluster..
The white flower cluster that have shown up late on our linden viburnum (Viburnum dilitatum 'Erie') look especially pretty with the shrub's vivid red fruit!
