September in our garden (page 2)

September is a peak time for butterflies in the garden so it's a good job that the daisies like Aster (Symphyotrichum) Connie are in full flower
Blue passion flowers (Pasiflora caerulea) has a reputation for being tender but she does so well in our garden against a south-facing fence. We get seedlings and suckers coming up to make new plants. The orange fruits of this species aren't edible
Helenium Beatrice is a fairly new cultivar from the national collection in Holland. A good height and a glowing colour make her a winner for the future.
Selinum wallichianum is a beautiful umbel from the Himalayas with white flowers and red stems in late summer and autumn. Hardy and perennial with us.
Rudbeckia Herbstsonne ("Autumn Sun") is one of the star plants of our garden in September. She gets to 6ft / 180cm tall and will also grow in light shade
