Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
It has been at least a couple of weeks I have been enjoying this fantastic view from my kitchen window every morning. The tree with red leaves at the back is red oak, and the one at the front with yellow leaves is a standard tree form of a trumpet creeper.

I remember, when I built the house and moved in, it was so depressing to look outside the first winter. The garden was empty and bare, just mud and stones remained there after builders' heavy machinery left. I used carton sheets to cover the windows not to have to look outside - you see, I did not order any curtains or blinds because the garden was supposed to create the best screen and a sight for sore eyes.
Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
The foliage colour is fantastic in autumn, just like scarlet oak with the same toothed margins.

Deciduous leaves start to turn their autumn colours when the air gets colder, which is an unmistakable proof that the real autumn is here. In other words even though we have enjoyed and absolutely stunning and extremely long period of Indian summer, possibly the longest in my whole life, we have to get ready for cold days now that will bring quick changes in our gardens.
Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
And just because the Indian summer lasted so long this year the plants flowered like mad and I would like to share with you at least some pictures I made in between serving customers and updating our website.

WORLD'S FAIR crepe myrtle
Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
It is also the very first time that this OMBRELLA® silk tree made so many seed pods. I can now understand why it is rated as invasivve in hotter countries. Still, just imagine that this beautiful tree would edge out locust from railways and waste dumps :-)
Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
Just round the corner is one of my most favourite evergreen shrubs - RED ROBIN photinia. I love it for two reasons: it is evergreen - and I prefer evergreen plants, and because three times a year it makes these gorgeous new shoots with red leaves. Now it is the last phase and these will not have enough time to mature to green, so they will remain red all through the winter until spring. Cool, isn't it?
Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
But since we have plenty of evergreen shrubs, and their time is yet to come, I would switch to flowers. The last flowers of the longest Indian summer in history.

This beauty is kniphofia 'LIMELIGHT'. It makes large flowerheads of rich yellow colour with a few orange funnels at the very top.
Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
Till the first frosts you can expect flowers on hardy fuchsias, such as TOM THUMB.
Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
This boy was saved from our shop where it was badly damaged by a fallen tree after a strong wind. It was broken in halves where only one half was attached to the roots. So we put it to our garden and see how beautiful it grows.

Aren't you cold, butterfly? He was not at the time I made the picture - it was almost 20C and it could not resist the nectar from ARIZONA APRICOT blanket flower. And I could notr resist making a photo - this perennial also flowers till the first frosts.
Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
Just like ARIZONA RED SHADES variety.
Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
And this blanket flower is special. Its name is FANFARE.
Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
Chinese mint shrub is very rare in cultivation. This low shrub makes lovely, spike-like, lilac flowers at the very end of the growing season for which it needs a long summer. No wonder it blooms like mad this year :-)

Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
Another brave and reliable perennial blooming till the frosts is tickseed. This one was our novelty ob the year and is called LIL' BANG™ DAYBREAK.
Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
Verbena rigida is a half-hardy perennial or reliably self-seeding annual which flowers the same year. We sell this beautiful variety called Venosa with rich violet purple flowers.

I remember delphinium was one of the first perennials I noticed they could flower again in late summer and autumn if pruned down to the ground after the first flowering. This variety is MF Dark Blue Black Bee.
Farewell to Indian summer22.10.2018
Autumn selection of flowers would not be complete without anemone. There is a bunch of them so at least one variety, and I choose HONORINE JOBERT. Pure white, elegant, mid-sized, profusely flowering - a swan among anemones.

Well, that's it for today. See you again someday!
Fragrant autumn09.10.2018
Apart from obvious large-flowerd plants such as roses or some perennials there are also a few shrubs blooming right now and releasing lovely perfume. Each one is different, all of them are very pleasant and relatively strong. Sunny and warm weather of Indian summer is a great help of course.

The first shrub to bloom is seven son flower. During the growing season it is a nice but not very showy shrub with fresh green, dogwood-like leaves.
Fragrant autumn09.10.2018
And from late August tiny white flowers start to open in large racemes. The whole shrub is covered with them.
Fragrant autumn09.10.2018
The perfume resembles mock orange but not so heavy and has a citrus hint. Flowers have enough nectar to feed all bees, bumble bees, butterflies, and chafers from all around for two months.
Fragrant autumn09.10.2018
And when the flowers finish blooming, there appear these beautiful wine-red calyxes which decorate the plant until the leaves fall down.
Fragrant autumn09.10.2018
The second fragrant shrub to flower from late September is Ebbing's silverthorn. It is a fast growing evergreen shrub commonly used in hedges (green version) as well as an attractive specimen (variegated forms).
Fragrant autumn09.10.2018
In this case the flowers are not visible at the first sight, they are mostly hidden under the leaves. Small, urn-shaped flowers release a strong and sweet perfume which resembles violets and carnations.

Even when silverthirn is not in flower it is a beautiful shrub which, being evergreen, brings life to our gardens especially when other plants are dormant in autumn and winter. We always have a good selection of varieties in nice sizes so you have a lot to choose from.
Fragrant autumn09.10.2018
The last fragrant shrub to bloom is osmanthus - sweet olive. Here also the plant name helps us understand that something will be sweeter thant others :-)

Flowers are again tiny, pure white, and the whole shrub looks as if dusted with a bit of fresh snow. The fragrance resembles orange blossoms.
Fragrant autumn09.10.2018
It is an evergreen shrub with leathery leaves, and we offer two species:
osmanthus aquifolium ...
Fragrant autumn09.10.2018
... and ... a osmanthus armatus

There are more fragrant plats that do not always offer scented flowers, there are plenty of shrubs with fragrant foliage but that will have to wait until next time :-)
Welcome autumn!22.09.2018
Wow, this year the change of seasons is incredibly exact - by tomorrow the temperature peaked at 30C, today it dropped to 20C, still with plenty of sunshine. It could go on like that until Christmas, what do you think? :-)

Still, such beautiful sunny and hot weather made our plants bloom like mad. Are yours without blooms? Well, come by to check out ours and choose some new for your garden. We have a wide choice of beautiful flowering perennieals as well as shrubs. I am sure you will find something nice here.

Though this chaste tree looked a bit dead-ish in spring after late frosts it quickly regenerated from the base and is beautiful again. And has been flowering for a few weeks now. Butterfly-bush-like flowers and highly scented, divided leaves make it a unique plant for your summer border.
