I wandered around today thinking about what perennials will bloom later. In the shady garden there is a hosta, Japanese anenome, eupatorium 'Chocolate', and Kirengeshoma palmata (except that in spite of continuing to try to grow it just gives up along about now and doesn't really bloom at all). The phlox paniculata 'David' should be blooming by now and isn't so hopefully that is still to come.
Out in the back garden there are helenium starting to bud up, as well as asters and mums. The penstemon is regrowing after transplanting and will probably start blooming once the weather cools. It is nice to have more to look forward to when everything is drooping in the heat.
