What's Blooming Now - Late
August 31, 2010
Late summer and early fall is still a wonderful time to visit White River
Gardens. Although many plants are long passed their bloom and are starting
to look tired, there are plenty more that are just getting started.
Anemone hupehensis or Japanese Anemone is a perennial that puts on a
marvelous show this time of year. Their showy flowers, often in shades of
pink or white, tower above lower foliage. Check out Anemone 'Honorine Jobert',
a white variety in the Heritage Garden, as well as a pink variety in the
Whimsey Garden that is displaying both single and double flowers.
Other plants still putting on a show include a few aquatic species such as
our water lilies. Look for a dwarf variety, Nympaea White Pygmy in a pot in
the Ruth Lilly Shade Garden. Both Salvia Vermillion Bluffs and
Thunbergia (Black Eyed Susan vine) can be found in the Form and Texture
Continue visiting White River Gardens in the coming weeks and you will not
be disappointed. The show is not over, yet!
