What's In Bloom

 

Fall Has Arrived! (Updated Oct. 2)

'Tis the season of Asters, Goldenrod, Russian Sage, Black-Eyed Susan, Sunflowers, Helenium, Mums and late-season Sedum, all against the colorful backdrop of changing leaves that grow in intensity with each passing day. Hearty, colorful Asters can be found in varying heights in the Perennial Garden, the Sensory Garden and the Home Demo Garden. Sedums heavy with pollinator-attracting blooms are also in the Perennial Garden. Russian Sage puts on a lovely fall performance with its lavendar shades. Plants that began their bloom in summer and are still in bloom at this time of year typically continue to put on a show through the first frost. Enjoy the cool, crisp temperatures that accompany the arrival of autumn and provide what some Minnesotans refer to as "sweater weather".
