A Saturday Walk in the Garden: End of Month Review

A pleasant Walk in the Garden this day let me see a number of flowering plants to share on this End of Month Review.

This is our first fall camellia, ‘Our Linda.’

Clematis ‘Ramona’ is strutting its fall stuff.

Many of the Encore azaleas are in bloom; here is only a sample.

There is still quite a bit of color lingering here at the end of September.

And finally, a pleasant surprise this fall has been the growth and first flowering of an October Lantern Lily (Echeandia chandleri). I won it at a raffle at our Garden Club last fall and am delighted to see that it made it through its maiden winter and is blooming nicely.

    So pretty. Our garden is also enjoying this fall, though we here in Michigan could sure use some rain.


  5. Clematis ‘Ramona’ is really stunning. I really like the October Lantern Lily – a unique, interesting plant.
