Can you believe this Rainbow Knockout? It is a difficult rose to find, and all of the ones I have growing are from http://www.gardenvalley.com/ Their roses are bare root and have never had a problem rooting and taking off the first year. In fact, I have just placed an order with them to ship the first of April. Home Depot had a small shipment of Rainbow this year but quickly sold out. They are not promoted by the nurseries because they don't look eye-popping in their containers. However, they are the only rose blooming profusely in my garden.
Henryi has put out one more huge bloom, can't believe it has any more. This is the Type 2 clematis that I cut to the ground so that it would rejuvenate. It certainly looks like it has.
Wow, was this a lucky choice this year, Heuchera Southern Comfort, a real star in the fall garden.
Heuchera Southern Comfort in another location, love, those great fall colors!
Penstemon Hamlin (not to be cut down until spring)
Rose hips from Pink Meidiland, also difficult to find, but I have ordered one more from Garden Valley Ranch.
Little Henry's Garnet Sweetspire looks better than ever this fall. It has never been as healthy and colorful. I did use a systemic this spring, and it seems to have done the trick. I was ready to replace it.
Limelight Hydrangea will have plenty to show off this winter. I have never left so many flowers on the shrub, but I will use some for the holidays,, maybe even spray some for my indoor displays.
I hate to end this on a downer, but this is my yellowing yew. It was a very large one that I have trimmed, turned off the water that sprays on it, worked in peat moss way down fed it and we'll just wait and see until spring. It will look great when we get the Christmas lights on it!
