Actaea Black Negligee
Obedient Plant Vivid
Hydrangeas blooming late really add to the late summer and fall garden.
I left most of the blooms on this year until they turn that wonderful white with pink hues.
The grasses are wonderful especially the late season varieties that are just beginning to open up. They are late coming up in the spring which means that bulbs and earlier perennials can be planted with them.

Plant for late season color not just flowers!
Sedum Matrona With Sedum Angelina
This sedum blooms in the summer with great dried flowers through the fall and winter.
Reblooming only happens with most plants if you deadhead consistently, not really a difficult task if you walk your garden to see what's happening.

What more could you ask for with this display of September blooms?
There are many more reblooming phlox in my garden but this just gives you an idea of the color you can have in the fall.

One of the roses that keeps going until frost
Many clematis rebloom is you give them a little trim after the main bloom. I cut down all my type II's to get rebloom in late summer and fall, lightly trim type III's to get some late summer blooms. I do not trim type II's again until after flowering in the spring.

I have never done well replanting for fall in the veggie garden. It seems everything gets eaten as soon as it sprouts! I had some wonderful peppers again this year with Mariachi (medium hot) and with a grafted tomato I am trialing. Improved Whopper was tasty but very inconsistent fruit size. I love that Golden Jubilee, lower acid tomato!
