As my Mum and Dad are both very keen gardeners I wanted to buy them a flowering shrub/bush for their 50th wedding anniversary. I want a plant that will flower around September every year. Anyone got any ideas? Their anniversary is 24th September.



Hibiscus syriacus flowers from August to October and there are several different forms to choose from. Hardy fuchsias will start flowering a lot earlier but will still be in full flower in September.

There's an anemone called A. japonica 'September Charm", though it isn't a shrub. Hebe 'Autumn Glory' is a later flowering shrub, though it usually starts in late summer and goes on till late autumn. Nerines are bulbs which flower late, usually October, sometimes earlier, depending where you live. Hydrangea paniculata 'Grandiflora' is another late flowering shrub, starting in late summer.

Hoheria sexstylosa 'Stardust'. Beautiful late flowering evergreen shrub that should be better known.
