I’m just compiling a list for myself that catalogues the things flowering ‘now’, the beginning of Sept.
I intend comparing it each year so i can see what’s the best, in my front garden, at giving late summer colour.
If we were able to use thumbnail/avatar size pictures it would make the blog look interesting but as we don’t it’s just going to be a long list of words !

Achillea Summer Wine. // Alstros.
Agapanthus Timaru. // Anemones.
Campanulas. // Catananche. // Colchicums.
Crocosmia. // Cyclamens.
Centaureas. // Chrysanthemums (alpine and standard)
Dahlias. // Drosanthera.
Diascia.
Dianthus. // Erodiums.
Erysimum. // Echinops.
Erigerons. // Echinaceas.
Epimedium ‘Amber Queen’. // Geraniums.
Gauras. // Gerberas.
Jasione.
Lychnis. // Monarda Summer Wine, Pink Lace.
Oenethera rosea, Apricot Delight. // Potentillas.
Persicaria.
Nemesias. // Rudbeckias.
Rosa P. Sunlight, Iceberg, F. Power, Flirt, P.Perpetue. Compassion.
Salvias.
Stokesia (white). // Sedum Rose Carpet.
Thalictrum. // Tradescantias.

I have done exactly what you have done for all the plants in my and my customers gardens for the past couple of years.

The following are all in full flower today in my garden in North Cambridgeshire. Most of these will still be in full flower until the first hard frosts

Also penstemmon, rudbeckia,crocosmia, coreopsis, japanese anenome,osteospermum,hardy fuchsia,sedum spectabile,physostegia.

You are very organised Louise1 and what a lovely long list. Many of ours' have gone over, partly due I think to the prolonged drought we had and stifling heat earlier, combined with our sandy soil.
Your list is very impressive and I'm jealous.

you still have lots of colour there louise, im not doing to bad either but a little ground frost on some nights which killed off a few clematis flowers which had just opened ;o(, good idea with the list ;o)

Thanks Mad !
I am apparently the most organised person that my friends and relatives know ..... i often wonder if that interprets as boring ;-)))

Thanks San, yes, it's still really colourful out there :-))))

No Louise1 not boring. Boring people spend their lives saying " ..... now where did I put ??..." Or, like me, people whose memories are a bit dodgy who make lists and then lose the list! Seriously though it makes good sense to know what you have and if possible, where its planted.

I'm inspired to do the same Louise, great idea.
