I'm starting to run out of gardening steam for the year, but I did want to get those irises in the Adventure Garden thinned out a little - I've been planning to for months. (The irises all found new homes with friends, BTW!) Now there is more space for the beautiful blue oat grass to be its rounded, arching graceful self. It is one of my favourite plants! Great texture, unique colour, and very low maintenance.
Here's what it looked like before.
Also blooming in the photo above is sedum 'Matrona', purple liatris, and echinacea 'White Swan'. These plants all bloom for a long time in late summer/fall, and are some of my other favourites for this time of year. They even look good left standing in the winter!
